Town Hall the venue for inaugural quiz night.
Radio stars Ed James (front pic), from Heart West Midlands, and Signal 1’s Dan Kelly(pictured), have been announced as hosts of the first ever LoveBrum Big Quiz, on Friday 6th March at Birmingham’s iconic Town Hall, promising an evening of entertainment, food, dancing, awards, and, of course, quizzing.
After announcing its best year ever in 2019, with a total of £73,000 in donations to local causes and a year-on-year increase of 20%, LoveBrum is looking to donate even more in 2020.
To raise these vital funds, LoveBrum will be hosting its Big Quiz fundraising event; guests will be able to enjoy a sparkling drinks reception, followed by delicious food and the all-important Big Quiz, where the first-ever champions will be crowned.
The quiz itself has been created with a Birmingham twist by Stoo Pittaway of Speed Quizzing.
Providing even more entertainment for the evening will be Eloquent Praise and Empowerment Dance Company, which teaches all styles of dance to children in Birmingham, but also provides additional support to build confidence, self esteem, and help young people overcome personal challenges and develop as individuals. Last year, the dance company was awarded £2,000 from LoveBrum.
Casey Bailey, a writer, poet, spoken word performer, rapper, and secondary school senior leader, will also be performing at the Big Quiz, providing social commentary and analysis through his poetry, lyrics and articles.
Paul Mitchell, Executive Director at LoveBrum, commented: “Our Big Quiz is the next major fundraiser for us to keep the momentum going following a fantastic end to 2019. Every penny we raise from the night will go to help local charities.”
