Don’t miss Trowbridge’s Quiz of the Year in 2017!

Event detailsRegistration

We are inviting businesses and organisations from around the West and North Wiltshire and the Kennet area to enter teams of 8 to compete for the coveted title of Brain of Wessex and the unique ‘Brain’ sculpture trophy.

Entering a team of 8 will cost just £320, including a light supper.

The Brain of Wessex is a grand corporate quiz event which was launched in 2006 – primarily targeted at Chamber of Commerce (Inspire) members and business in the area.  From the start it was very well supported by the Wiltshire business community.

This very successful quiz ran between 2006 and 2009 until the Civic Hall was closed down for refurbishment in 2010.  Thanks to the support of Pearson May, we are holding the Brain of Wessex again, and we hope that with your support it will be just as successful as the previous ones.

The Brain of Wessex has been successful in attracting teams from a variety of sectors – Banking, Financial Services, Property, Legal, Accountancy, IT , Retail, Industry, Recruitment, Marketing and Media – to network, entertain clients, as well as a staff building exercise.  But it doesn’t have to be restricted to just these categories; you can book a table and invite suppliers, prospects and even spouses or partners along.


We have always had great celebrity support, and this year is no different, as our quiz master will be world renowned adventurer and current High Sheriff of Wiltshire, David Hempleman-Adams.

Do join us for a really cracking night.  You’re sure to find it beneficial on several levels.  At the same time you will be helping one of the most marginalised groups in our society – homeless and excluded men and women.
