A unique quiz concept will be making its way to Preston city centre for a good cause.Advertisement
Project Loco, organised in partnership with second-year UCLan Event Management students, will take the traditional pub quiz to a whole new level.
Coming to Switch Nightclub, the over-18 event will be held to raise money for Barnardo’s children’s charity.
Barnado’s mission is to transform the lives of the UK’s most vulnerable children, by reaching out to those who need it and defending, safeguarding and supporting them.
Former Love Island star, Katie Salmon, has been announced as celebrity guest for the evening, and she will be mingling with competitors during the Project Loco quiz.
You can expect outrageous challenges, wacky prizes and a whole lot of boozy antics from Project Loco.

The quiz will be hosted by experienced hosts DJ Ste Owens and radio personality Danny Mylo.
Lee Johnson, Deputy Manager at Switch, said: “The students have come up with the concept and pitched the idea to Switch.
“We are more than happy to let the students use the venue for free and also provide support if needed.
“Ticket sales are going well and is proving to be a hit with students and groups alike.
It will take place in Switch’s Fire Room on Friday 9 February from 7pm – 10.30pm.
