imageLast year, you might remember I started a charity pub quiz in the name of a former journalist and friend of mine called Nigel Scott who died a while back. The event thankfully was a huge success and great fun. In fact, it was so popular it sold out in just under five days, so this year the CIPR Committee and I have brought it back bigger and better.

We have moved it to a new venue in Alea Casino, which means we have increased the amount of tickets from 100–180 people and the quiz master will be  James Wilson of Fresh Radio who has very kindly volunteered his services for nothing.


I started the quiz because I felt we needed to hold a regional event that brought together the local Yorkshire based PR companies, consultants and the local media in a social type event that would be fun rather than serious and all for a good cause.

So to help raise funds for Nigel’s chosen charities we have again decided to organise our now annual quiz night. Tickets only cost £20 per person and include food, and hopefully everyone will be able to attend this year. So if you fancy coming along get your ticket now through our Eventbrite page here.

I will look forward to seeing you all there.
