mySalisbury and Salisbury Radio are putting on the biggest pub quiz Salisbury has seen… EVER!
The Community Project and the city’s new Local Radio station are combining to bring together multiple venues in and around Salisbury. The venues combined will be hosting what will be the biggest pub quiz South Wiltshire and West Hampshire have ever seen.
The quiz will be broadcast into venues around the City on Salisbury Radio and a £250 cash prize will be awarded to the winners as well as the pub hosting the winning team also receiving a trophy to keep for the year, as well as having the kudos of being the best quizzing pub in the area. The quiz allows teams of up to 6 with each player paying £3 to take part with every penny of that being donated to Salisbury Hospice Charity.
The quiz follows from successful online quizzes held by mySalisbury founder Andy Munns and his wife Hannah during the first lockdown in 2020. Andy said: ‘It was great fun hosting the online quizzes from our kitchen. We only really expected our friends and family to play but the first quiz had over 800 viewers and we had lots of fun doing it, so ended up hosting ten. We raised money for some great local charities including Salisbury Hospice Charity and in total, we raised over £1500 from the quizzes. We joked that we would like to do a real pub quiz and make it really big, so this event feels like a natural evolution of that.’
Venues can sign up for FREE and will be supplied with posters and social media material to help promote the event to make it a success for both the pubs or bars and the charity.
The quiz will take place on Sunday 3rd October and venues are already signing up to take part in the event, though more locations are needed. Pubs and other venues can sign up to be one of the quiz hosts by following this link. VENUE SIGN UP
The quiz will be raising vital funds to help support Salisbury Hospice and the service they provide. mySalisbury have signed up as one of the 40 4 40 Club and pledged to raise £1000 this year to help celebrate the Hospice’s 40th Birthday. This is one of our events to help us in achieving this £1000 target.
Louise Compton, Corporate Fundraiser at Salisbury Hospice Charity, said: “We are very excited to be the chosen charity for Salisbury’s Biggest Pub Quiz…EVER!
It’s a wonderful opportunity to work with Andy from mySalisbury and the team at Salisbury Radio, bringing our community together at venues across the city for this fabulous quiz whilst at the same time helping us raise awareness of our hospice services.”
Salisbury Radio was keen to support Andy’s idea for the quiz and proposed to broadcast the quiz on the radio station, which is soon to launch on DAB and help make the quiz as big as possible.
David Harber, Managing Director at Salisbury Radio, said: “As the former host of the Spire FM Pub Team Challenge, I am particularly excited to be part of this evolved concept which not only benefits an exceptional local charity but also our local pubs that have had such a hard time recently.”
He continued: “At Salisbury Radio we like to ‘think big’ and the mySalisbury quiz concept is very bold, beautifully designed and truly beneficial.”
Players will be able to sign up to play the quiz soon once the list of venues has been finalised. Watch this space!
