Updated: Jan 14, 2022

Hat Trick / Hindsight Productions are currently casting contestants for the next series of the BBC Two quiz show – Mastermind, which will be celebrating its 50th year in production this year.

Do you have what it takes to sit in the famous black chair?

Know enough about your specialist subject to be forensically tested?

How’s your general knowledge? Are you a pub quiz whizz?

Many start - but only one will finish... Will it be you?

What type of people are we looking for?

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

  • You do need some General Knowledge, but we’re really interested in your 3 specialist subjects – the wider the range the better!

How do you get on the show?

  • The audition will only take 15-20 minutes and is very relaxed and really good fun!

Auditions are currently underway, with the heats filming in Belfast this Summer (adhering to government guidance).
