Quiz fans are being encouraged to reserve their table for the Mayor of Wolverhampton's Charity Quiz, taking place on Thursday (9 February, 2017).

The general knowledge quiz is back by popular demand and will be held in the Mayoral Suite at the Civic Centre.

Quizmaster Carl Husted will oversee proceedings, and money raised will go to Wolverhampton Mayor Councillor Barry Findlay's chosen charities, the MS Therapy Centre in Tettenhall, Wolverhampton Samaritans and Help For Heroes.

He said: "Our charity quizzes are one of the highlights of the Mayoral year, with people enjoying fun and games and helping to raise thousands of pounds for good causes at the same time."

Prizes are on offer for the teams finishing first, second and third, with a booby prize for the team with the least points. A host of fantastic goodies will also be available in charity raffles, along with games of barmy bingo.

Places are now available for teams of up to 4 people, priced £20 per team. The fun gets underway at 7pm for a 7.30pm start. Light snacks and tea and coffee will be available and competitors are invited to bring their own alcoholic drinks.

Places must be reserved in advance - please contact the Mayor's Parlour on 01902 554090 or email themayor@wolverhampton.gov.uk for more details.

Another quiz night will be held on Thursday 4 May, and places can be reserved now.
