The show will be in the style of the BBC's Have I Got News for You, and will be included in the 600th edition of the paper, released on January 8.

The mayors of Wymondham and Attleborough, councillors Peter Broome and Vera Dale, will be team captains and Tim Warner and Terry Redhead of Archant will complete the line-up.

The teams will be tested on their local knowledge using extracts from the extensive paper's extensive sound archive.

Hosting the show will be ex-television newsreader, Clare Weller, and funds raised from ticket sales will go to the Wymondham Town Mayor's charities.

Chairman of the talking newspaper, Pat Crawford, said: 'This fun quiz will not only be an excellent way for us to record material for our 600th edition but it will also showcase what we have been able to achieve since the service was launched in April 1998.'
