CTK Charity Quiz - Jan 27th 2017

The annual Charity Quiz will be held at Christ the King Parish Club on January 27th at 7.30pm.

Teams can have a maximum of four players and it will cost £7.50 per head, which includes a supper of scouse. There will also be the customary raffle.

Please contact Dave Cotson (davecotson@hotmail.com) to give him an idea of numbers, and to let him know if anybody would like the non-scouse supper alternative. This is always a very pleasant evening, with a superb quiz, and is a great opportunity to quiz socially and help raise money for charity.

New ITV Quiz show - testers wanted.

Would any of you be interested in playing in a couple of trial runs of a new ITV Quiz Show?

The quiz is being written and developed by some of the same team behind University Challenge, and their aim is that it's a robust academic challenge - but not as recondite as UC can be! It's pitched at families of Sporcle addicts and board game lovers.

They are looking for clever, confident teams of three family members - a parent, child and grandparent. Ideally, the child on the team will be aged 10/11/12.

They are beta-testing a couple of versions of the format in their MediaCity offices on Friday 4th August and Thursday 1st September, and are really keen to have real families come in and play.

It's not for broadcast, so should hopefully be a fun, low-pressure day out!  If you fancy it, give them a call on 0161 952 0609 or send them an email to clare.parody@itv.com
