Question of Sport – Sir Ian Botham & Bill Beaumont

The Northern Echo Arena will play host to an interactive evening of a Question of Sport. The evening will see former team captains Sir Ian Botham and Bill Beaumont pitted against each other once more, under the watchful eye of Sky Sports’ Pete Graves.

The event will include a three course meal and drinks on arrival. There will also be an exclusive sporting auction taking place on the night.

Former England test cricketer Sir Ian Botham said: “The arena is a great venue and local to me so I am really looking forward to a fun night with my old Question of Sport rival and great friend Bill Beaumont. Let’s just hope I get the home advantage and win this time!”

Bill Beaumont, a former England rugby captain said: “Mowden is a great rugby stadium and I am looking forward to taking Beefy on again after all these years. He may have the home advantage, location wise. However, I’ll be right at home in a rugby stadium so will give him a good run for his money.”

Sky Sports presenter Pete Graves added: “I’m really looking forward to hosting the Question of Sport evening with Bill and Beefy. What a great location Mowden is to have these two sporting icons go head to head.”
