Gef’s Big Quiz – A Night Full of Entertainment

Who wouldn’t give their left ear to be stood in a crowded pub trying to get served this weekend? The annoying wait as the guy who strides up to the bar like Lord Farquaad gets served first despite the barman promising ‘you’re next mate’. Well we’re going to recreate that as best we can this weekend, plus giving you the chance to win some top prizes and raise some cash for a bloody good cause with Gef’s Big Quiz.

The Quiz

Hosted by Lorcan O’Mahony and Jack Divers (AKA IOM’s answer to Ant and Dec) and includes some cracking questions with rounds including general knowledge, music and a look back at 2020 (not all of it was bad). Plus we have some surprises along the way and a few cameos. You can either sign up on Zoom and take part to win, or just watch on Facebook to have a laugh. The quiz gets underway at 8pm this Saturday, leaving you plenty of time to go deckchairing in the afternoon and get in out of the cold, order a takeaway and crack open a cold one before we go live. 

The Cause

Saturday’s quiz is about having fun but also about raising money for Isle Listen, a charitable initiative that provides support and training in schools, the workplace and community. Isle Listen focuses on helping people to recognise that mental health is just as important as physical health and operates under the clinical guidance of, and is a trading name of MCH Psychological Services, an Isle of Man registered charity that can trace its roots back over 35 years.
