The Ultimate News Quiz is back for 2024!

The Ultimate News Quiz invites a guestlist of TV and News personalities to battle it out in a current affairs quiz. As one of London’s most popular charity events, it has raised over £1.6 million since it began in 2007.

Previous years have seen famous faces including Louis Theroux, Grayson Perry, Dermot O'Leary, Vanessa Feltz, Dr Ranj Singh, Martin Lewis, Carol Vorderman, Piers Morgan, Susanna Reid and stars of ITV’s the Chase racing to be crowned champions. Alongside teams such as BBC, ITV, This Morning, Good Morning Britain and Channels 4 and 5, we’ve also had renowned corporations with the likes of Netflix, Google, Amazon and Facebook in attendance.

Our most recent event took place on 9th March 2023 where we raised an incredible £250,000. 5 News claimed the victory last year - but it's all to play for when we return on 29 February...

Right now, over 4 million children live in poverty across the UK. That’s almost 30% of all children. And 350,000 more than last year. With the impact of the cost of living crisis hitting home, they’re even more vulnerable. Tonight, many will go to sleep hungry. Some won’t have a proper bed to climb into or a safe space to wake up in.

Last year, people like you helped us reach more than 765,905 children, young people and families in the UK, and supporting the Ultimate News Quiz will help us reach even more.
