TV quizzers set for battle at Redfest

26 October 2016

Several of TV's top quizzers are heading to Sheffield next month to take part in the first ever 'Redfest' event.


Hosted by leading UK entertainment provider Redtooth, the inaugural festival will run from 11-13 November at Sheffield United Football Club. Redfest will see the UK's best in quizzing, poker and darts descend on the city for an action-packed weekend,


The festival will bring together the best Redtooth has to offer inside one venue.


One of the most anticipated events of Redfest is the 'All star TV head to head quiz show!' where stars from TV's Top Quiz Shows will take each other on as well as the audience in a quiz spectacular.


Shaun Wallace, one of the stars from ITV's The Chase, said: "I am really looking forward to coming to Sheffield and joining Jenny Ryan and Paul Sinha and going head to head with the Eggheads.


"There is certainly some healthy competition between the teams and I know my fellow Chasers have been doing our research and preparing well for the event.


"It promises to be a really good battle of the brains between both teams and I am confident that we will emerge victorious!


The opposing team taking part in the competition will include Barry Simmons, Kevin Ashman and David Rainford, all from the BBC TV Show Eggheads.


The All-star head to head quiz event is taking place on Friday 11 November in The Ambassador Suite at Bramall Lane. Tickets are priced at £15 and include pie and peas with VIP tickets priced at £25 and include a meet and greet and photo opportunity.


Other stand-out-events at Redfest include the Redtooth darts Open, the Redtooth Poker Tour Charity Tournament and individual and team UK Pub Quiz Championships.


Martin Green, Managing Director at Redtooth, said: "We are incredibly excited to be launching the inaugural Redfest. It is going to be a fantastic event which will showcase all the areas that we specialise in and overall it will be lots of fun for everyone involved.


"The all-star quiz show promises to be one of the must-see highlights of the festival and I know will be highly competitive amongst the quizzers as well as the audience."


"I am very much looking forward to bringing the best poker and darts players as well as quizzers to Sheffield and watching them compete in their chosen fields."


Evening entertainment at the three-day event includes the 'Late Late Show' and 'The Redfest Party' with food, comedians, special guests and live music running into the early hours of the morning.
