Housebuilder Brain Game 2017
On Thursday 11 May 2017, over 570 guests joined us at The Brewery for the tenth anniversary of the Housebuilder Brain Game event.
Brilliantly hosted by Homes under the Hammer’s Martin Roberts, the quiz was fiercely competitive, with the six quiz rounds read by our wonderful celebrity guests, Tara Fitzgerald, Simon Calder, Debbie McGee, Diana Moran, Chris Kamara and Chesney Hawkes.
With a video appearance from Leicester City’s Danny Drinkwater, the live auction hosted by the legendary Jonny Gould and a live performance from Chesney Hawkes, the evening lived up to its billing as the industry night out of the year!
Congratulations to Knight Group who became the Housebuilder Brain Game champions for the very first time with a score of 66, beating second placed Stanmore Contractors by only one point, with joint third-placed teams Playbuild and newcomers Meeting Place Communications, close behind with 64 points.
The night raised a record-breaking £385,000 for Marie Curie, including a live auction which saw over £48,000 raised in pledges towards our Nursing Service, and a new record for the highest priced sale of a Ben Mosley painting for the live artwork ‘Westminster Summer Fire’ he completed on stage during the evening, which sold for a magnificent £27,500.
Thank you to all of our kind prize donors, sponsors, supporters, committee and guests for making the 10th Housebuilder Brain Game a roaring success!
