Following the success of this year’s inaugural Popmaster Live! event, our sister title, Classic Pop, is looking forward to the event’s return on Saturday, 3 March 2018. Once again, Classic Pop will be teaming up with BBC Radio 2’s Popmaster himself, Ken Bruce and Phil ‘The Collector’ Swern, for a fun-filled night of pop trivia and top quizzing.
The DJ’s weekday show regularly attracts a listenership of more than eight million, and this live version of his daily Popmaster quiz will be carefully crafted by Phil to test all levels of expertise. Consisting of 11 rounds, including Intros And Outros, Guilty Pleasures and Missing Words, Popmaster Live! will test your knowledge on a wide range of pop music from the late 70s, iconic 80s and early 90s.
Select A Dream Team
2017’s event attracted quizzers from across the country and was heralded as a huge success. A total of 32 teams went head-to-head, with Neil Barker from Manchester and his team walking away triumphant. Winner Neil said: “Popmaster Live! was a thoroughly enjoyable and well-organised event. The team and I are all listeners to the Forgotten 80s radio show on Absolute 80s and I’d be lying if I said we didn’t enjoy winning. However, I really wasn’t expecting it.”
With teams – such as the Revenge Of Table 13 – already signed up for next year’s event, the competition for 2018 is hotting up. So start selecting your dream team now and join us in London. Teams can feature up to eight people per table. You can also enter the quiz as an individual or a couple, and you will be allocated to a team.
