On 15th September, 48 teams took part in the 2nd annual World’s Greatest Quiz Night on the banks of the River Thames in aid of Dimbleby Cancer Care. Organised in partnership with Quintessentially Foundation, the evening was hosted by Jonathan Dimbleby and Claudia Winkleman.

Guests including Patrick Grant, Simon Callow, Katie Derham, Henry Conway and Tom Parker Bowles joined Quintessentially founder Ben Elliot for the Quiz followed by a live auction, with cameo video appearances from Davina McCall, Clare Balding, Jeremy Vine and David Dimbleby who was unable to be there in person this year.

The evening raised in excess of £50,000. The main sponsor Soak & Sleep were there, as were a team from Mayfair jeweller 77 Diamonds who also donated two beautiful lots for the auction. Food and drink was provided by the fantastic hospitality team at St Thomas’ with additional sponsorship from Fullers and Bespoke Bar Brands.
