The infamous annual fundraising quiz sees broadcasters, production companies and media teams battle it out across a series of rounds testing their television trivia, all in aid of the Festival’s two talent schemes, Ones to Watch and The Network, as well as the New Voice Awards and year-round outreach activity.

The event will be held at Proud Embankment on Thursday, 9th May from 6pm – click here to find out more.

“Bodyguard, Killing Eve, Andrew Neil dancing in front of Bobby Gillespie on This Week, it’s been quite the year for gratuitous TV bloodbaths. I for one am thoroughly looking forward to quizzing the devious minds behind all this horror.”

Festival Director, Lisa Campbell, said: “We are absolutely thrilled that Nish is bringing his inimitable wit to our TV quiz thanks to our sponsors Endemol Shine UK and producers of The Mash Report, Zeppetron.”

In 2018 So Television’s ‘So Solid Crew’ won the quiz, taking the trophy from the Channel 4 team who was reigning champion in 2017.
