Eggheads Series 15 - Contestants Wanted

12 Yard Productions are looking for vibrant and diverse teams to take part in the 15th series of the popular BBC2 quiz show Eggheads.

Eggheads is a game in which 5 members of the public face general knowledge goliaths and try to beat them for a cash prize.  When the Eggheads win, the money rolls over to the next show. Often a huge amount of money can be at stake. 

Each team will consist of 5 team members and 1 standby, so they need teams of at least 6 people. They are holding nationwide auditions over the coming weeks and months. We are keen to find teams from all over the UK.

You can download a copy of the application form from here:

If you need any more information, please contact them by email on: bryce.hart@12yard.com or by phone on 0141 427 2746

It doesn’t matter if people are not part of an existing team, they could consider creating one with work colleagues, friends or even family to compete for the cash prize!
