Broadcaster’s Sutton Coldfield Town Hall date
Broadcaster and Eggheads host Jeremy Vine will be the next celebrity host of our community quiz on Wednesday 19th May. The interactive quiz is part of a series of community events and initiatives since the temporary theatre closure, to bring entertainment to audiences at home and keep in touch whilst preparing for live shows to return.
It will also raise money for the restoration of Sutton Coldfield Town Hall.
Jeremy Vine is one of the UK’s most successful broadcasters. In more than thirty years at the BBC, he’s presented Newsnight, Panorama, Crimewatch, Eggheads and Points of View — as well as his daily Jeremy Vine Show on BBC Radio 2, the UK’s most listened-to radio news programme and his daily Channel 5 show.
Ahead of his rescheduled live talk at the Town Hall on 24 September, (tickets available here), Jeremy has been asked to guest host the virtual community quiz in the meantime, following a successful quiz hosted by The Chase’s Paul Sinha in April.
The interactive quiz, run by producers InQuizition, will be broadcast live to ticket holders via zoom. It is challenging enough to make players think, but with a focus on accessibility and fun.
Revenue from tickets will go towards a £5 million major renovation of the charity trust-run town hall. The essential renovation works will secure and restore our Edwardian venue for future generations to use and enjoy.
Tickets are £7.50 per device. Audience members can operate as a team or alone at home, or work with friends and family over the telephone or messaging apps.
Quizzers cannot be seen but can message the host and each other live.
Ticket holders will be quizzed on a range of topics from popular culture to geography, history to science, and everything in between.
The quiz on 19th May will take place at 8pm, with streaming starting at 7.50pm, until around 9.15pm. To purchase a unique link, or for more information, visit the What’s On page at https://www.suttoncoldfieldtownhall.com or go to SCTH.ORG/VirtualVine.
