Join the Ed to Head challenge quiz on BBC Radio Derby

Ed George - twice!

Ed to Head is a chance for you and a couple of friends to have some fun and show off your knowledge during Ed George's Afternoon Show on BBC Radio Derby.

Each weekday Ed challenges a team to solve just five questions.

They will test what you know about what's around the corner and around the world.

DABstars - 25 Pts
Bess's Brainiacs - 22 Pts
Breadsall Boffins - 22 Pts
Derby Donx - 22 Pts
Rosliston Tree Huggers - 22 Pts
Callow Top Talent - 21 Pts
Swadlincote Fire Flies - 21 Pts
Sixteen Twenty Christmas Tree - 21 pts
Rosemary's Reducers - 19 Pts
Gully's Gang - 18 Pts
Billy Bonkers Band - 17 Pts

And, if you need help - his listeners are there to ask!

If you can't muster a team you might just have a bit of information that will help the team or maybe you have a local general knowledge question of your own that we can put to the team?

So, do you fancy going 'Ed To Head?'

How will your team compare to others from across BBC Radio Derby's editorial area?

Your team of three to five people just need to be available together by a phone between 1 and 2pm Monday to Friday during Ed's show.
