1: Get signed up
Signing up is your first step - register your details with us, and we'll email you the Quiz Pack. You'll also be able to get in touch with us for help, advice, materials and any other support you need.
2: Pick a time and a place
Try to pick a time when most people will be available, and in a easily accessible location – it doesn't have to be a pub! And make sure you give everyone plenty of notice to diarise the quiz of the year.
3: Set up your fundraising page
JustGiving and Virgin Money Giving can be a big help when you're setting up - they're perfect platforms for collecting registration fees, promoting your quiz, getting teams registered and doing any extra fundraising around your Quiz.
4: Get your quiz out there
Spread the word, and try to give yourself as much time as possible to recruit. Use a Facebook event, Twitter, email, your work's intranet and our downloadable A4 posters - but you'll still need to cajole people personally!
If you don’t ask, you don’t get. Ask as many people as possible to get involved, such as your family, friends, work colleagues, members of local sports and social clubs, members of your local church, synagogue, mosque and staff at your local school. And as well as joining the quiz, some of them might be willing to help you promote it by contacting their networks, putting up posters or selling tickets.
If you're holding your quiz at a pub, they might even help you manage the recruitment of teams - and it's worth listing your page on pubquizzers.com, too.
If the glory and honour of being crowned winner isn't enough, ask a local business if they will donate a prize such as a bottle of wine, a hamper or a voucher.
6: Get covered
A good quiz is a safe quiz! You may need to get a license for your activities at your particular venue, as well as health and safety checks. For more information on the technicalities, visit hse.gov.uk.
