1. Big Chiefs Quiz

Team up and test your sporting, music and general knowledge in the Big Chiefs Quiz at Sandy Park on Wednesday, 26 April.

The quiz will be set and hosted by the Chiefs’ official Away Day Quiz Master, scrum-half Haydn Thomas, and some of the Exeter Chiefs squad will be on hand to offer assistance to teams.

The winning team will receive six weekend passes to this year’s Mitsubishi Motors Exeter 7s.

Entry for a team of six costs £75, which includes food on the evening.

Comedy nights at Sandy Park are held regularly throughout the year. The next confirmed date is Friday, 28 April and the line-up includes MC Barry Castagnola and comedians Steve Day, Karen Bayley and Andy Wilky. The following date is scheduled for Friday, 23 June with a line-up to be confirmed closer to the time.

Tickets cost £10, or £15 to include food.
