Your quiz night checklist

Step 1 Sign up

Congrats if you’ve already done this. Go you! Your pack will arrive in September, now’s the time to start thinking about what your quiz night will look like.


Double-check with your venue to make sure everything is booked in and ready to go. Don’t forget to register your venue with us at from September.

Step 3 Gather your team

A great quiz needs a great team. Find people to help with catering, welcomers, someone to be MC, the all-important audio/visual team and people to help set up.

Step 4 Start promoting big

Download promotional resources from the USB and put up the poster provided in your pack. You can also order resources for your event.

Step 5 Use the pack

This pack is designed to make your life as easy as possible. Once yours arrives, familiarise yourself with the Quiz Film and download answer sheets and other resources from the USB.

Step 6 Customise your big quiz

No two churches are alike, and no Big Quiz Nights will be alike. Tailor your night to whatever suits you best, whether that’s adding food, music, fundraising challenges... you can even shape the running order!

Step 7 Get in, you beauty

Preparation is paramount to make your quiz a success. So remember to get in to your venue in good time to set up the PA (speakers), microphones, laptop, projector and screen.

This is it. You will have planned and prepared for a great night of community fun and fundraising! Encourage your guests to post online through the evening using #bigquiznight
