As much as daytime during ILMC is awash with private meetings and conference sessions and debate, the evening schedule of events and parties are what make the expedition unique. Here’s a few you may have missed…

On Wednesday, 27 April at 21:30, the MVT Pop Quiz is a quiz with a difference. Karousel’s Music Biz Speed Quiz is the UK industry’s premier quiz social. It’s fastest fingers on the (smartphone) buzzers, and it’s not just about what you know and who you know but how fast you can answer. Sign-up in teams of up to five here.

Also at that time, the ‘Up the Ante’ Poker Tourney sees around 100 explorers-turned-cardsharps battle it out for some spectacular bar-tab prizes. The tourney costs £30 to enter and all proceeds go towards the Nikos Fund, which this year is raising money for Stagehand. Sign-up in advance here to reserve your seat or enquire on the night about last-minute spots.

Later that night, there’s more prizes galore with The ‘Pass-tures New’ Table Football Competition from 23:45 – sign up in the bar in pairs for both international glory and the world’s tiniest trophy.

Wednesday night’s fun is hosted by YTL Arena Bristol.

And on Thursday, 28 April, immediately after this year’s Gala Dinner & Arthur AwardsThe ‘I Will Survive’ Campfire Karaoke kicks off at 22:30 and goes on until the early hours. A source of hilarity, depravity, and aural sins in abundance, it’s hosted this year by Event Genius and Megaforce. No need to sign-up – just enter if you dare!
