This year, 23 companies tested their mettle in the Assembly Halls to see who would be crowned with the prestigious title.

With the triumphant return of the popular and thought-provoking “smell” round after the pandemic, other rounds included music lyrics, spelling, geography, and 20th-century history.

After 120 questions, the winners were announced as longtime supporters of Julian House St James Wine Vaults.

They went home twenty points ahead of the second place team. They were followed by Stone King in second and Deloitte in third.

Event organizer Matthew Redmore said: “It was fantastic to see so many Bath organizations supporting the event again.

“Bath’s mastermind is always a popular fixture on the Julian House calendar.

“It was a fantastic evening and we raised a brilliant amount of money which will go directly to support the people we help.

“We would like to thank our fantastic main sponsor Battens Solicitors for their support, alongside Caterer Searcy for the delicious food, GA Solicitors for being round sponsors, Wiltshire Digital Drive for marking the event and all the volunteers who helped to making Bath’s brain such a hit. The final amount raised through the event is expected to be around £16,000.

The first Brain of Bath quiz night in 1999 was the brainchild of a small group of businessmen in Bath concerned about homelessness.

Originally, the event was held in the University of Bath’s main sports hall and the teams competed for the title of Brain of Bath and the impressive Waterford Crystal trophy.
