Venue: Birmingham University
Date: 7th October
Entry Forms closing date: 30th September

The Lord Mayor is inviting everybody to take part in his annual Mega Quiz on the 7th October. The Great Hall of the University of Birmingham is providing the venue and the quiz has attracted the services of the popular Midlands Today presenter Nick Owen to act as quizmaster.

The Lord Mayor's Mega Quiz is a long-running fundraising event that generates money for the Lord Mayor's Charities Appeal. The £25, for the team of four to enter, will contribute to such charities as Pancreatic Cancer Research and Engineering Scholarships. In previous years, the quiz has raised money for a variety of hospices and medical research departments.

For the winning team, the prize consists of 4 double rooms at The Radisson SAS. The one-night stay includes champagne dinner and breakfast at one of the finest hotel's in the city. Through out the night, there will be raffle where plenty more prizes will be handed out.

In anticipation of the event, The Lord Mayor has enthusiastically praised the event: “The Lord Mayor’s Mega Quiz in October will provide a fun-filled night of trivia, brain teasers and mind-stretching questions and I look forward to welcoming Birmingham’s “quizzers” to Birmingham University to join in the fun”.

For further details, contact the Mayor's Parlour on 0121 303 2040 for an entry form. Alternatively, visit any information centre, library or leisure centre for an entry form.
