September 28 2018

BBC Radio Bristol’s Geoff Twentyman is playing quizmaster on Thursday 11 October at The Bristol Pavilion (home of Gloucestershire County Cricket Club) as two teams compete in his ‘Big Sport Quiz’.

Former Bristol City Manager Gary Johnson, Bath Rugby’s Freddie Burns, Somerset Cricket’s Pete Trego and racing driver Dino Zamparelli will have their sporting knowledge tested at the quiz in aid of ‘The BBC Radio Bristol Alive Appeal’.

 Geoff Twentyman said: “The West Country is a hotbed of sporting rivalry so I’m expecting some serious competition at my ‘Big Sport Quiz’ – but I’ll make sure we’ll have plenty of laughs too! I really hope you can come.” 

Gary Johnson is captaining one of the teams and taking on Freddie Burns who will be at the helm of the other.

 BBC Radio Bristol has joined forces with the local charity ‘Alive’ to make a difference to the lives of older people across Bristol and the south west region.
