The Ultimate News Quiz 2013

Highlights of the Ultimate News Quiz 2013!

Thursday 7th March saw Quaglino’s restaurant host the seventh Ultimate New Quiz. The Quizmaster was Sky’s Dermot Murnaghan, and Clive Anderson provided half-time entertainment and hosted the charity auction. Talent agency Capel and Land battled it out with 24 other media and corporate teams to be crowned Ultimate News Quiz champions - after winning a tie-break with CNN. A combined Today/World at One team came third.

Other highlights included TOWIE’s Lydia Bright and Conservative MP Jacob Rees-Mogg co-hosting a round called The Only Way is Eton.

Thank you to everyone who helped us raise a record £76,000 and due to the generous sponsorship of the Quiz by the Vodafone Foundation, every penny went directly to our two charities, Restless Development and Action for Children.

Well known guests on the night included…

Adam Boulton, Alastair Stewart, Charlotte Hawkins, Emily Maitlis, Jon Sopel, Kay Burley, Kirsty Walk, Krishnan Guru-Murthy, Matt Barbet, Natasha Kaplinksky, and Richard Bacon.
