Mastermind outreach to the Network to maximise LGBT+ participation in the famous BBC2 programme

The Network has been contacted by Hatrick Productions, producers of the world famous ‘Mastermind’ experts in specialist subjects quiz (we helped with promotion to our LGBT+ community about three years ago as well). We are really pleased that Mastermind is outreaching to our LGBT+ community, and we are going to be suggesting that in the next series (details and how to become a contestant are provided below) a dedicated set of LGBT+ questions are included in some of the series programmes.

BBC Two’s Mastermind is currently scouring the UK to find contenders for the next series which will be filmed in Belfast!

We would appreciate if you could please share our attached flyer and details on how to apply amongst your friends, family and colleagues.

Although applications close on Monday 24th May 2021 at midnight, we would encourage you to apply as soon as possible as casting is currently under way.

Entry is open to all UK residents (including Channel Islands & the Isle of Man) who are aged 18 or over.

Hat Trick/Hindsight are committed to making programmes as inclusive as possible.

Please email to request an application form (it takes just 10 minutes to complete).

CORONAVIRUS: Throughout the casting period, the safety and wellbeing of all applicants, contributors and members of staff remains our number one priority.

Filming will take place later this year adhering to government guidance.

Many thanks for your assistance!

The Mastermind Casting Team
