Mastermind team approaches the Network for support on LGBT community outreach

The Network is very happy to share that it has been approached by Mr Ayrton McGurgan of the BBC 2 Mastermind Team to ask for our assistance on promoting outreach to potential contestants who are from our LGBT community, with the opportunity to participate in next year’s (2020) Mastermind, and to input to the famous Mastermind competition in regard to routes to effectively involve our community in its delivery — more on our guidance, which has been enthusiastically requested by the Mastermind team, to be provided here soon.

If you would like to apply to become a contestant, please email Ayrton ASAP at: An application form takes just 10 minutes to complete, The deadline for applications is Monday 25th May although we have been advised that auditions will be starting in the next few weeks. All you need to apply is to be over 18 and a UK resident.

The Network salutes Hat Trick’s Hindsight Productions and Mastermind for contacting us and requesting our supportive guidance, which evidences their enthusiasm and earnestness in being truly reflective of our LGBT communities spectrum within our nation and society, and the invaluable part we contribute to both of the latter from national heroes such as Alan Turing to the arts, caring professions, culture, education and much more in national life and internationally.
