Two huge FOCAL events confirmed for 2022!

Blackpool 2021: Paul, Fi, Tas, and Tom love the karaoke bar!

Get your 2022 calendar out and start writing in some dates because FOCAL events are coming thick and fast! After a successful return with events in Waterford and Blackpool in 2021, we’re now looking ahead to next year where we hope to get back to some sort of normality with a nice full calendar of events across the UK and Ireland.


First over the line are two heavyweight events. The evergreen COLIN event is back for its seventeenth outing, which means it is now old enough to apply for a Driver’s Licence. Olivia Rodrigo rejoice. Taking place on 29th-30th January 2022, COLIN is the O.G of co:events and is perfect for newbies and old hands alike. See our event page for Lincoln to get all the details and sign-up now!

Lincoln 2020: pub quizzing!

And our most attended event, London, has also confirmed its slot on the 2022 FOCAL Calendar and is already taking registrations. Landing on 9th April 2022, London will this year be brought to us by former York host George Armstrong and the excellent Fiona Titcombe. The venue is large and spacious to ensure everyone’s safety but nonetheless demand is high and places are going fast! See our event page for London to learn all about it and add your name to the quickly growing list of competitors.

While Lincoln and London are the first events to open themselves to registrations, we have several other dates pencilled in for 2022 that we hope to confirm shortly. Please keep checking back at our Upcoming Events page and await final confirmation before booking travel and accommodation, but we are planning an event in Manchester (26th Feb) and Blackpool (10th September) in 2022, as well as a FOCAL record of three Irish events!

Dublin is planned to return on August 20th 2022 for those wishing to visit the Irish capital and, fresh from saving the day in 2020 and 2021, Waterford is also set to grace our 2022 calendar on June 18th. But this year, it’s bringing a friend!

Our debut third Irish event in 2022 will be Galway, which is planned for June 11th, the weekend before Waterford. Presented by ZoomDown host Paul Anderson, with help from Dublin host Eddy Byrne, Galway is an exciting addition to the FOCAL family that gives another event for our faithful Irish contingent to enjoy. And, with it being just a week before the returning Waterford event, it’s a perfect reason for our UK-based attendees to make a stay of it and enjoy a week on the Emerald Isle, bookended by two great FOCAL events.

Once again, keep checking our Upcoming Events page to see more events take shape and be the first to sign-up when the pencilled-in events get confirmed. We will have a FOCAL Finals event at some point in November 2022, likely to be held in the West Midlands, and we’re also hoping to stage a south coast event, with ideas in the pipeline for events in West Yorkshire, the Midlands, and Essex.
