About Question One

Question One's weekly Quiz Nights provide pubs and venues with a great way to increase sales, get people in the door and give pub-goers an entertaining and memorable way to spend an evening. For regular venues, we offer a flexible and fair pricing structure that's responsive to how busy you are and protects you on quieter days, so we get our rewards when you are busier. No other Quiz company backs their performance the way we do!

Question One has years of experience in setting up quizzes, and we provide everything you need to get up and going.

Our quizzes average over 2000 players, nationwide every week, and with our highly competitive rates, we guarantee it won’t be only the customers smiling at the end of the night!

Our quizzes are designed to test whilst also entertain, with a mix of general knowledge, current affairs, music, media and picture puzzles. We design our quizzes to appeal to everyone and also offer tailored quizzes on request.

Performance and Pricing

Our fee structure is designed in such as way as to limit a venue’s risk should the turnout be low, while rewarding both the venue and Question One when we have a good turnout, thus we’re as motivated as you are to bring in the crowds! Our fees vary by the number of players participating, the day of the week and other factors, so please contact us [link!] directly to receive a quote tailored to your pub or venue.

In addition to providing professional quality weekly quiz nights, we can help you organise special one-off events such as corporate quizzes or other games, themed quizzes written especially for you, cabaret nights or other tailored events. We are also experts at hosting fundraisers that will help your charity or organisation raise the most money possible with special quiz features, and offer discounted rates for charitable causes.

Quiz Marketing

Because we’re as keen as having a full pub as you are (because the better you do, the better we do!) We will do all we can to market your quiz night and fill up those tables!

Two Free Quizzes in the First Two Months

We're offering two free quizzes in the first 8 consecutive weeks of quizzing with us as an incentive to help you grow your weekly event. We will deduct the cheapest quiz from the previous four weeks from your fourth quiz.

Free Audio Equipment Hire

Should your venue require it, we can provide a wireless microphone kit on loan to your venue. Please see our terms and conditions for further details.

What does our pub need to provide?

We provide all quizzing materials - pens, answer sheets, picture sheets and posters. We use your existing sound system or lend your a cordless microphone kit. You need to provide the prizes (bar vouchers, drinks or cash) which vary depending on your budget. We know from experience the importance of marketing, and expect that you will maintain your on-site promotion (A-boards, chalk boards, posters, flyers) and social spaces to promote the quiz. We will help wherever we can and our Quizmasters are alway on the lookout for opportunities to increase player numbers.

How long does it take to build a crowd?

Depending on the time of year and your venue, it takes up to 3 months to have a regular following. Quiz nights can range in size from 10 to 100, but once you have regular teams settled it's very consistent. Leading up to the launch, marketing is absolutely critical.

How does Question One market the quiz?

Both online and at your venue: we provide posters and flyer designs for your venue, we Tweet question clues directly to (or from) your venue, we advertise on Facebook, use Google keywords and other websites.

Are quizzes profitable?

We charge a scaled fee based on turnout, and we pass you all entry fees, so if 40 people play for £2 each, you have £80 on the night to finance your prizes and offset against the cost. Calculate the average spend of a quiz-punter burning brain calories all night and we’re sure you’ll notice a big difference to your bottom line.

How do we decide the, frequency, time and night of the week?

A weekly quiz as a regular fixture is great for players who can decide to attend at short notice without having to check schedules or ring your venue. In 12 years we have had only 2 monthly or bi-weekly quizzes that worked. Start times vary, with the most popular between 7-8pm. We can always delay the start if groups are running late or there are other delays. The most popular nights for quizzing are: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday, but we also have some diamonds on Monday and Thursday.

Why do I need you when I can write and present a quiz myself ?

You can buy a quiz online for £1.50 and present it yourself, or spend 3 hours writing your own. Either way, the constant jeering may affect your confidence in the long-term. Our team writes fresh quizzes each week, market the quiz and find cover during holidays.

Are quizzes profitable for venues?

We charge £60 + £1 per player (+VAT) and we pass you all entry fees, so if 40 people play for £2 each, you have £80 on the night to finance your prizes and offset against the cost. Calculate the average spend of a quiz-punter burning brain calories all night and we’re sure you’ll notice a positive difference to your bottom line.

How do you market the quiz ?

We market the quiz online and at your venue: we provide posters, flyers and digital artwork, we Tweet question clues directly to (or from) your venue, we advertise on Facebook, use Google keywords and other websites. A-boards, chalk boards, posters (visible in bar area and bathrooms) and flyers should be maintained by the venue which your Quizmaster will oversee. Having your staff informed and talking about the quiz to customers is also very important!

How will I be invoiced ?

Itemised invoices are sent by email at the start of the month following your event, whether it's a one off, periodic or weekly event. The invoice will have VAT added on to it which some businesses and charities can claim back, according to their circumstances. Payment needs to be received within 28 days of the invoice date to avoid additional charges. The invoice will include details of Question One's bank account so that you can transfer the money easily and electronically.

What are your payment terms ?

Our terms are strictly 28 days for weekly quiz events, with a deposit of 50% required for special events. We accept BACS / electronic payments only (unless in exceptional circumstances). A £30 cancellation fee applies to regular quiz events cancelled within 24 hours. Cancellations must be confirmed by email to [email protected]

What types of payments do you accept ?

We accept electronic BACS transfers only, with a preference for GoCardless. For safety and accounting purposes we do not accept cash on the night.
