NEVER Gonna Quiz You Up is the title of a pop quiz in Keighley on January 30 to mark Independent Venue Week.

Local writer Ben Baker will host the event celebrating Keighley’s music scene past and present at the Exchange on Russell Street.

Exchange owner Michael Watmough said: “Quizzers won’t need to have intimate knowledge about the local rock scene but Baker wants to pay tribute to the great acts that the town has produced, from The Nomads to The Shakes to Random Hand and As Sirens Fall.

“He is also calling on bands past and present to join in for the chance to be dubbed Keighley’s Brightest Band. There will be Taskmaster-style games, the opportunity to get crafty, and silly jokes.”

Mr Watmough said the venue was excited to be part of Independent Venue Week, a celebration of music venues around the country that is supported by radio station BBC 6Music.

He added: “The quiz format is a great way to get the local music scene together for some laughs and a good social. It kicks off a weekend of events to celebrate our place on the circuit.”

Doors open at 7.30pm , cost £1 per player. The Exchange’s monthly quiz continues on February 13 and March 12. Visit for further information.
