ITV’s THE CHASE STAR TO HOST FUNDRAISER QUIZ
Comedian and quiz champion Paul Sinha, ‘The Sinnerman’ from ITV show The Chase, is to host a special on-line quiz to raise money to support the future of our theatre and heritage venue.
The quiz, which will take place next week on Wednesday 21st April, will be broadcast live to ticket holders on zoom, with a downloadable answer sheet to complete at home.
Audience members won’t be seen by each other but can live message the host, star of ITV’s The Chase, and send in their scores. Revenue from tickets will go towards the £5million major renovation of Sutton Coldfield Town Hall. The essential works will secure and restore our Edwardian venue for future generations to use and enjoy.
Following his sell out show here in 2019, Paul Sinha was a natural choice as first guest host of our quiz, working with top producers InQuizition. They are superb quiz producers – challenging enough but also accessible for non-quizzers and good fun.
Tickets are £7.50 per device – so you can play at home with the family with just one ticket. The quiz will start at 8pm, with streaming starting at 7.50pm, until around 9.30pm. To purchase a unique link, or for more information, click here.
Audience members can quiz alone or with family at home, or work with friends and family over the telephone or messaging apps. Ticket holders will be quizzed on a range of topics from popular culture to geography, history to science, and everything in between.
Businesses / Teams wanting to take part should contact the Town Hall to arrange a group booking.
At the Town Hall, we have been successful in receiving additional funding through the Government’s Cultural Recovery Fund, to enable us to bring more staff back to work and plan the autumn and winter programme, including the pre-production of the venue’s December pantomime, Cinderella. Funding will also support artistic projects – such as this quiz – through the year to keep you entertained at home.
A further online quiz hosted by Eggheads’ Jeremy Vine will take place in June, ahead of his rescheduled live show at the venue in September. More to follow in our next newsletter!
