    Murray Irrigation’s corporate affairs and stakeholder engagement executive manager Perin Davey said Murray Irrigation had jumped on board to support the event.

An inaugural agricultural-themed trivia night, AgQ, will be held in Deniliquin next month.

The not-for-profit event, which aims to attract young people with an interest in agriculture and irrigation, will be held at The Crossing Café at 295 George St from 6.30pm on Friday, March 17 and will include five rounds of trivia — to truly test the local agriculture knowledge.

Comedian Elliot Goblet has been engaged to host and MC the night, which will provide laughs and entertainment for the crowd.

The event is being co-ordinated by a number of community organisations, including Murray Irrigation, and will focus on engaging the next generation of farmers and industry professionals.

Murray Irrigation’s corporate affairs and stakeholder engagement executive manager Perin Davey said Murray Irrigation had jumped on board to support the event, and described it as a wonderful initiative that would engage regional people in a fun and interactive way.

‘‘We’re thrilled to support AgQ. It will be a fantastic evening and will also provide an opportunity for attendees to improve their agriculture and irrigation knowledge,’’ Ms Davey said.

AgQ will involve five rounds of trivia that will incorporate agriculture-based knowledge, as well as a range of general trivia questions.

Three presenters, yet to be announced, will also briefly speak to expand upon related trivia topics.

‘‘In between the rounds of trivia three presenters will provide expert information on their fields,’’ Ms Davey said.

Attendees can book a table of 10, or purchase individual tickets to join a mix-and-match table.

Tickets can be purchased online via Eventbrite at: www.eventbrite.com.au/e/agq-trivia-night-tickets-32176326258
