MUSIC fans across Suffolk are preparing for the ultimate showdown as they pit their pop knowledge against hundreds of others at a charity quiz.

With questions spanning five decades of music, the competition will appeal to pop lovers of all ages - as well as raising hundreds of pounds for Children in Need.

The quiz will be hosted by BBC Radio Suffolk presenter Stephen Foster

Mr Forster said: “I've been compiling pop quizzes since the late seventies and in recent times have done regular music trivia evenings at Northgate High and St. John's Primary schools in Ipswich.

“There seems to be an insatiable appetite for pop quizzes in this area and if last year's Children In Need pop quiz is anything to go by we're in for another great night."

Last year more than 40 teams packed the Grand Hall of the Corn Exchange to answer questions about the last 50 years of pop music.
