Barnstaple’s Really Big Quiz will be back in 2020 after celebrating a major milestone this year.

Last month's quiz raised £2,991 for Age Concern Barnstaple and the town's See Hear Centre.

The event marked the 10th anniversary of organisers and hosts Simpkins Edwards raising money for the Mayor of Barnstaple's charities.

In its 10 years it has raised more than £30,000.

This year's event saw 33 teams test their knowledge, with Locals at Work walking away with the trophy.
