Join us for our brand new event in 2018, The Great Big Sports Quiz!
Leave your dinner suits at home and join us for an informal evening of sporting fun and games! The Great Big Sports Quiz will see teams pit their wits against our star-studded sporting line up to see if they can beat the pros at their own game. Will their brains match their brawn?
Begin your evening with an exclusive drinks reception and meet our sports stars as they limber up for the big quiz.* Then settle in for an evening of sensational sporting questions, engaging everyone from a novice to the sports expert, whilst you enjoy a two-course dinner with wine and beer.** There’ll also be a chance to show off your ‘non-sporting’ knowledge with a couple of special rounds and the opportunity to bid on our 'money can't buy' auction prizes. At the end of the night we'll revert to our 'league table' and crown our inaugural champions. Your team can be between four to eight people and tickets include a two-course dinner with wine and beer.**
Can your team beat our pros from across the sporting world...
