How to host your own Pub Quiz! Hosting a pub quiz is one of the easiest ways to raise money and awareness for SPEAK’s campaigns and have a good time with your friends! We’ve put together all the resources you will need from the questions and answer sheets to PowerPoint template for you to use! And don’t forget, your regional support worker would love to come along and support you too, email them on firstname.lastname@example.org!
This may be in your local pub, church or chaplaincy. Think about who you are trying to get to the event and where they would feel most comfortable. Tip - A Pub that is known for having a good regular pub quiz works well as you won’t have to work so hard on getting people to the event!
Money, money, money! We suggest that you charge at least £1 per person. If you are holding it in a pub, you may like to ask the landlord if you can add this to the normal charge; for example if it is normally £1, why not change £2/3 for a “charity night”? NB This is fairly common and people don’t mind paying extra if its going towards a “good cause”.
Publicity – This is where most events
Top Tips for SPEAK events! 1. Overestimate how long
everything will take and how much publicity you will need. Practise explaining SPEAK’s values for different audiences with each other. Budget for the event and charge an entry fee which will cover all expenses even with a low turn out…! Keep in touch with venue and contributors to make sure they don’t double book! Pray before, during and after! Plan time to celebrate and reflect on what you’ve achieved!
go wrong, groups spend so much time organising it they forget to make sure people come along! The good news is that it can be really easy! From posters, to Facebook to notices in your church, every little helps! Tip – we have made a template poster for you to adapt!
On the night... Make sure you arrive early enough to arrange the venue how you would like it and sort out any last minute problems. You will need at least 4 people to help out; 1 collecting the money, 1 reading the questions, 1 collecting the answer sheets and 1 marking! Its also a good idea to have a very brief talk about who speak is and what we’re campaigning about. (see the website notes) Tip – Don’t forget to hand a bucket round for donations!
