Join the biggest companies in the entertainment industry at Action for Children's The Entertainment Quiz of the Year.


The Entertainment Quiz of the Year always promises an evening of fun and excitement. After a sparkling reception, guests of the 2019 event engaged in an interactive quiz at Plaisterers’ Hall, hosted by famous faces Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash. During the three-course gourmet dinner, teams including Walt Disney Studios, NBC Universal, Lionsgate and Google battled it out in rounds like ‘Pitch Perfect’ (music) and ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ (food and drink) with 20th Century Fox claiming victory at the end of the evening.

This year’s event raised over £93,000 for Action for Children through fundraising activities including a raffle and silent auction. This brought the event’s cumulative total to an amazing half a million pounds since its inception in 2015.

£93,000 going towards creating a safe and happy childhood

The funds raised at this event will help us make a difference to the lives of children and young people across the UK. Three in every ten children live in poverty. There are approximately 170,000 young carers in England aged 5-17. Three children in every classroom have a diagnosable mental health disorder. The £93,000 you helped raise at The Entertainment Quiz of the Year will go towards improving the lives of vulnerable young people.
