The Ultimate News Quiz

The Ultimate News Quiz is a fundraising event like no other! Pitching teams from the UK's leading news and media organisation against each other, it is a battle of wits, intellect and sheer luck. All in support of charitable causes.


Over the past decade, the Ultimate News Quiz has become one of London’s most popular annual charity events, attracting an incredibly influential and star-studded guest list. Now in its 11th year, the current affairs quiz sees well-known TV and news guests battle it out alongside other familiar faces for the coveted prize of a modest tin cup.

As well as bringing together a dazzling array of TV and news personalities, the evening also raises crucial support for two charities: Action for Children and Restless Development. Action for Children supports and speaks out for the UK’s most vulnerable and neglected children. Restless Development works with young people in South Asia and Africa to train, educate and inspire them to lead development in their countries.

Thanks to our generous sponsor, the Premier League, last year’s Ultimate News Quiz was in a position to donate every penny raised to our two chosen charities. Over the past nine years, the event has raised a total of over £700,000. Join us on Wednesday 14th March 2018 at the Grand Connaught Rooms, Covent Garden and help us raise even more, reaching the amazing target of £100,000.
