A Grand Corporate Quiz

Julian House is delighted to announce the re-launch of the Brain of Wessex, a grand corporate quiz event to be held in March 2017 and is inviting businesses and organisations from around West and North Wiltshire and the Kennet area to take part and enter teams.

Teams will compete for the coveted title of Brain of Wessex, and the unique ‘Brain’ sculpture trophy - making it an excellent opportunity to either entertain clients, or reward staff, at a great, yet competitive, night out. 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.

As all the proceeds from the event are going to Julian house, so your organization will be making a meaningful contribution towards alleviating a complex social problem, homelessness,  and helping one the most marginalised groups in our society  – the homeless and excluded men and women.

Brain of Wessex only stopped the first time round when the Civic Centre was refurbished in 2010 but with the support of Pearson May the event is able to re-launch in 2017 and will be held in the popular revamped and state-of-the art Lansdown Hall at the Civic  Centre.

The bar will be open from 6pm with the quiz starting at 7pm prompt. A tasty light supper will be served at 8.30pm. Up to 20 teams of 8 will participate, covering a wide range of business sectors from across the area.

Brain of Wessex has always enjoyed great celebrity support.  This year the guest quizmaster will be world-renowned adventurer, businessman and current High Sheriff of Wiltshire, David Hempleman-Adams.

Entering a team of 8 will cost just £320 a team (including a light supper) payable to Julian House.

Background Information:

Many will  know Julian House best for our 24hr emergency hostel in Bath which has been supporting homeless people for 30 years. In Wiltshire, Julian House opened a social enterprise, the Trowbridge Bike Workshop in 2014 which offers a Build-a-Bike 6 week course that provides a rewarding, hands-on introduction to bicycle maintenance, which involves participants completely dismantling a bike and building it again from scratch.    This was followed by a complementary Skills Hub in 2015, offering a programme of training, work experience and job coaching to help build up service users confidence and help them get used to working with the ultimate goal of helping them into volunteering and paid for work.
