Sign-up for the Lord Mayor's Mega Quiz

By on 13/09/2011 in News

Places are still available for Mega Quiz 2011 with the Lord Mayor throwing down the gauntlet to brainy Brummies.

Birmingham historian Carl Chinn MBE is the quizmaster for the September 29 event – an annual fundraiser for the Lord Mayor's Charities Appeal.

It costs just £25 to enter a team of four and the victorious team will win an overnight stay at The Radisson SAS hotel (four double rooms) with champagne dinner and breakfast.

This year’s event will raise funds for the following charities:

  • The Royal British Legion (Birmingham Branch)
    Administers and supports the delivery of welfare services and the membership and fundraising activities of the Legion's branches and clubs throughout Birmingham.  RBL welfare work is a lifeline for thousands of serving and ex-service personnel.
  • St Margaret's Community Trust (Ward End)
    Formed to refurbish, redevelop and extend the old St Margaret's Church to create a multi-purpose community centre.
  • Tiny Babies, Big Appeal at the Women's Hospital
    A campaign raising funds to build a brand new Neonatal Unit at Birmingham Women’s NHS Foundation Trust.
  • The Irish Guards Appeal
    Created to supplement existing Regimental charitable funds, to support the families of those killed in action, those wounded or injured on operations and those who have to leave the Army.

To enter, please download the entry form and return to the Lord Mayor’s Parlour, Council House, Victoria Square, Birmingham B1 1BB

    I attended this event. I was very disappointed to see that the last round this year was on Birmingham itself. It seemed fairly obvious to most of us in the hall that this had been put in to stop the team from South Wales who had won the last two years winning it again. What does this say about our city ? Not only that, but it was such a bad round too . There’s so many interesting things and interesting people you could ask about , instead of having lost of boring – in what year ? – questions. I guess that this round had also been put in because it pandered to Carl Chinn’s ego.
