A ONE-DAY SUMMER QUIZZING SPECTACULAR WITH TV & QUIZ CELEBRITIES, TRADE STANDS & BIG MONEY PRIZES
A day you won’t want to miss!
Big names from the world of TV quiz shows and entertainment are getting ready for the first ever Quiz Fest UK event in the New Forest this summer.
Stars from ITV’s The Chase and BBC TV’s Eggheads will be entertaining the crowds when Quiz Fest UK takes place at the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu on Saturday 29th July 2017. The festival will be open from 2pm and finish at 11pm.
Christopher Biggins will host a giant fun team quiz. And Nicholas Parsons will host a separate session for professional quizzers. “It’s going to be a fantabulous occasion”, said Christopher Biggins, one of Britain’s best loved actors and comic performers.
Mark Labbett, the “Beast” from The Chase will be there, along with Sean Wallace and Paul Sinha, fighting it out with Eggheads, David Rainford, Chris Hughes, Pat Gibson, Barry Simmons and world quiz champion Kevin Ashman. Barry Simmons encourages all quizzers to “Come and quiz against famous TV stars, you may well be surprised at how well you will do, and have bragging rights forever”.
Stars from the world of entertainment will also be there, meeting and chatting with competitors. Among them, John Challis (Boycie from Only Fools and Horses), Murray Walker, David ‘Diddy’ Hamilton and Helen Lederer.
Pub quiz teams are already signing up for what promises to be an afternoon and evening packed with fun and general knowledge where quiz fans of all ages and abilities will be able to test their knowledge against the greats of the quizzing world. Our celebrities are not eligible to win the cash prizes so they will be passed down to you to win.
There will be trade stands selling a selection of quiz merchandise, celebrity book signings, free quizzes with spot prizes and lots more going on throughout the day. It is hoped that Quiz Fest will become an annual event based in the New Forest, attracting visitors and local people alike.
Included in the full day ticket price is free entrance to the National Motor Museum, Palace House, Beaulieu Abbey and grounds plus the many exhibitions on display including On Screens Car, World of Top Gear and Secret Army Exhibition. Plus, take a ride on the monorail and veteran bus. Beaulieu’s summer activities will also be running for children.
