Ultimate showbiz quiz Gav Aid moved to Troxy

Gav Aid at Troxy
Tickets for Gav Aid, the Ultimate Showbiz Quiz that turns the tables and lets celebrities put the writers through their paces, sold out in just five days for last night’s event, held at Troxy. Partnering with the venue for the first time, Gav Aid’s organisers worked with the team to include the additional Circle space last minute and maximise the venue’s capacity.

The quiz took place in memory of Heat Deputy Editor Gavin Reeve-Daniels, who passed away from pancreatic cancer in September last year. The biggest names in showbiz, journalism and PR, including quiz teams from Heat Magazine, The Daily Mail and Hollyoaks, joined forces to raise money and awareness for Pancreatic Cancer Action.

Grace Harrison, Events Manager at PPA and organiser of the evening, explained; “Due to the nature of Gavin’s personality and the role he held in the media industry, it is unsurprising that once again, there was such a wide spread support for Gav Aid and what it stands for. Tickets sold out in record breaking time but hosting the event at Troxy gave us the contingency to also utilise the Circle for an additional capacity.”

Guests watching from the Circle had a bird’s eye view of all the action to watch the drama unfold before joining the festivities for the after-party disco.

Denise Van Outen hosted the night and introduced showbiz co-hosts at each round; including stars from Geordie Shore and The Only Way is Essex. Journalists from ITV, The Mirror and Smash Hits showed their competitive side in the quiz, missing out on the winning first place to Heat World.

Troxy’s in-house event team managed all the production for the evening with popular street vendor, Speck Mobile, who provided catering in a pop up hub on the ground floor.

Daniel Smith, Business Development Manager, Troxy explained; “When the event sold out in less than seven days but demand for tickets was still high, we had to reconsider how we could maximise space within the venue. The added capacity of the Circle allowed us to keep the quiz tables spacious, and ultimately raise more for the charity.”
