Auditions are currently taking place on Skype, with the heats filming in Belfast this September.



So, if you think you have what it takes to be quizzed about three specialist subjects of your choice, applications are OPEN NOW.

They are looking to cast a diverse range of people with all levels of quizzing experience throughout the whole of the UK.

You do need some General Knowledge, but they’re really interested in your 3 specialist subjects – the wider the range the better.



Anyone can apply as long you are aged 18 or over.

You also have to be a resident of the UK including the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man.

After submission, one of the casting team may call you and invite you to a Skype audition.



Auditions are really good fun and they only take 15 minutes.

To apply, email for an application form.

It’s a short application and the sooner it’s completed the sooner auditions can be arranged.
