Joe Haddow to host our 2018 quiz night!

13th September 2018 | News

Self-confessed book nerd Joe Haddow will host Book Aid International’s forthcoming quiz night on Tuesday 30th October. In addition to producing Simon Mayo’s Book Club on Radio 2, Joe is also the presenter of the Man Booker Prize podcast and his own literary podcast, Book Off!

Joe Haddow said:

“I’m honoured to be chairing the 2018 Book Aid International quiz, which is always an excellent evening. Now I finally have a use for that book of dirty limericks I got in my stocking. I’m looking forward to knowing the answers to all the fiendish questions for a change!”

This year’s quiz will be the charity’s ninth and as always is especially for the book industry. It will take place at publisher and Book Aid International supporter Hachette UK’s stunning 6th floor venue with views over the river Thames.

The night will feature a raffle with the chance to win prizes including tickets to the opera, vouchers for London museums and wine tasting.

The charity is encouraging people who believe books change lives to join them for an evening of quizzical fun in support of people around the world who do not have the books they need.

So gather your friends, book your team and get swotting up!

Date: Tuesday 30th October

Time: Doors open at 6pm for a 7pm start

Venue: 6th Floor, Hachette UK, 50 Victoria Embankment, London, EC4Y 0DZ

Entry fee: £18 per person (teams of six maximum). Includes light finger food.
