How to plan a quiz

1: Get signed up

Signing up is your first step - register your details with us, and we'll email you a link to 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 posters - but you'll probably still need to cajole people personally! 

5: Prizes!

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.

And don't forget to tell us about your plans and get your free fundraising pack. 

Boost your fundraising

Looking to go the extra mile? Here are a few ways you can make your quiz night extra special:

  1. Give teams the option to buy three of their answers for a donation of your choosing
  2. Hold a raffle and ask local business, friends and family for prizes
  3. Hold a cake sale or put on a spread. You can either ask your quizzers for donations, or ask your venue to give a discount on food and then donate the difference. 
  4. Have a collecting tin at the venue, or have our pin badges at a suggested donation of £1. If you'd like a branded tin or pin badges, make sure you've registered
  5. Charge a 'fine' to anyone caught using their mobile phones during the quiz
  6. Make your quiz fancy dress and charge people who don’t dress up!
  7. Ask your employer if they can match the amount you've raised from the quiz.

About Quiz-Ex

Back in 2010, a group of friends organised a quiz night. It was meant to be a one-off event, but ended up becoming one of the largest quizzes of its kind in Europe. In 2016, they decided to share all of our hard work and experience to help others begin or reinvent their own quiz nights. 

Quiz-Ex provide:

  1. A totally FREE quiz every month, or a one-off - whatever you need!
  2. Fully customisable answer sheets so you can include your own logo/images
  3. Regular new content added weekly, including Recent News, Picture Rounds, Multiple Choice and much more.
