Big Town Showdown

Is Burnley brighter than Blackburn? Is Chorley cleverer than Chester? We want to know.

Every weekday from 5pm Russ Morris will ask you 10 general knowledge questions, you can't pass and we will only accept your first answer. 

For every incorrect answer you give, we will also add a 10 second penalty.

Whoever answers in the fastest time will go top of our leaderboard making their town the smartest in the North West. 

We allow one player per town or village. 

If you've missed out this time, you can always represent another location or wait until the next round.
