The Radio and Music Tombola on Tour!

12th June 07 - Tokyo, 17 Westgate Road, Newcastle

Remember back to those golden days, when we used to get together, talk radio and drink a beer or two? Well, they’re back at long last – the North East branch of the Radio Academy returns with an epic night of entertainment, and a free bar too*!

The brains of North East radio will be pitted against one another with a music and radio themed quiz night, courtesy of Galaxy North East and Steve and Karen’s Tombola on Tour.

Regional, local, student, hospital or RSL – whatever your role in radio, get a team together! Teams should be no more than five people (though more than one team from any one station is allowed). If you don’t belong to a station but want to come along, let us know and we’ll create a team for you. The cost is £1 per team.

Whoever you ask to join your team, expect plenty of music trivia, some slightly anoraky jingle rounds, bags of questions about radio and maybe a picture round too. The prize? The prestige of beating your North East peers. And maybe some champagne, too. But mostly the prestige.

They’ll also be a free bar* thanks to Galaxy North East and 100 – 102 Century FM. Hurrah!

* free until the money runs out, and then it’s your round
