Writer, broadcaster and Daily Mail columnist, Bel Mooney will be the official quiz mistress at the annual Julian House Brain of Bath quiz. Popular amongst corporates, this year’s fundraising event will take place on Thursday 4th July from 7pm in Bath’s prestigious Assembly Rooms.
Up to 25 company teams will go head to head and compete for the coveted Brain of Bath 2019 title. Now in its 20th anniversary year, the organisers are hoping the event’s fun, yet competitive spirit will carry on under the watchful eye of Bel Mooney.
Cecil Weir has been organising the event since 2001 and is delighted that the busy writer and broadcaster was able to support the event “Although by their very nature quizzes are competitive one of the great things about the Brain Bath is that the teams participate in a fun and light-hearted way. The number one goal of the evening is to raise funds towards the work of Julian House but along the way there’s no rule that says you can’t enjoy yourself at the same time. I’m sure Bel will help us to achieve that and perhaps share some snippets from an amazing career. Indeed, her first job in journalism was at the Bath Chronicle!”
“Such events are vital to an organisation like Julian House. Homelessness is not a fashionable cause and we have to work very hard for a disproportionate amount of our income. However, once we have an opportunity to involve companies in our work and dispel some of the myths attached to homelessness, gaining further advocacy is not normally an issue.”
The event will once again be sponsored by long time Julian House supporter, Deloitte. A light supper will also be served by renowned caterers Searcys and contestants will have the opportunity to bid for a carefully selected range of auction prizes in the mid-point break – including a highly desired Mulberry Bag.
