And now, from Harrogate… it’s the quiz of the year.

Form a team and find a table for what is a highlight of every Theakston’s festival. It’s the fiendishly fun quiz that pitches authors against publishers and reviewers against readers in a battle of crime fiction wits as Saturday night hurtles towards Sunday morning.

The leaders of the inquisition are, as ever, the dynamic duo of Val McDermid and Mark Billingham. They are the Bonnie and Clyde of music, the Lennon and McCartney of crime, the Ant and Dec of everything else. Together, forever, they will test your crime fiction knowledge until your little grey cells are begging for mercy. But there will be no mercy!

Remember it’s all just a bit of fun. With prizes.
