Hospitality Action

Other 9th March 2018


The Big Fat Quiz is back! Tickets for what has become one of Hospitality Action’s most popular events are now on sale and this year’s extravaganza will be hosted by Radio and TV Presenter Pat Sharp of Fun House and What’s Up Doc fame.

Now in its twelfth year, guests will need their wits about them as they tackle questions on music, sport and entertainment – the ideal opportunity to bring friends and colleagues together. The Big Fat Quiz takes place at Park Plaza Westminster Bridge, London on Wednesday 9th May.

Sponsored by Bidfood and the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge, the biggest quiz in town promises to be a fun-filled evening of trivia and networking. Guests will be treated to a drinks reception, a delicious three course meal including slow-cooked shepherd’s pie, wine and a goody bag! There will also be a live auction with many exclusive items up for grabs.

It’s a night of light hearted fun, but there’s a serious reason behind it. Hospitality Action helps those in the industry in times of need, whether suffering from serious illness, bereavement, redundancy, poverty or mental illness. In 2017 over 2,000 people were helped by the charity when they needed it most.

Mark Lewis, Hospitality Action CEO comments: “It’s only with thanks to the ongoing support of the industry who so actively support our fundraising events, that we’ve been able to make a difference to all of these people’s lives. The Big Fat Birthday Quiz was a huge success last year so we’re excited to bring it back this spring.
“We’ve already had a host of well-known companies and industry names, including The Goring, Nestlé Professional and Unilever Food Solutions, sign up. Tickets are selling fast, so I urge others to get in there quick if they want the chance to win the quizzing crown.”

If you think you have what it takes to be named quiz champion, or just fancy an evening of great food, networking and entertainment, email [email protected], visit or simply call 020 3004 5504. Tickets are £140 each or £1,300 for a table of 10.
