Our Quiz Format


Can you write a custom or themed quiz?

Yes we can. We have a team of quiz writers and contacts who can devise the most devious of themed quizzes for your special event.


I want to play a quiz!


What happens during a quiz night?

You play with your team of carefully selected experts, pitting your wits against other teams. You decide on a clever team name (Eg: ‘Quiztal Chandeliers’). The Quizmaster delivers 40 carefully curated questions, which are corrected at half-time, with a clear winner decided by the end. In between, there is banter, outrage, cheering, applause and much accusational finger-jabbing.
Our quiz nights are designed to encourage you to enjoy interacting with other humans. Quiz nights are one of the last human activities where the use of smart-phones and other devices to participate are not allowed. Cherish this freedom!


Do I need to sign up beforehand or can I just show up and play?

You can show up or book a table in advance. Some of our busier quizzes top 100 players so it’s best to check if you are unfamiliar with the venue. We publicise contact details for each venue on our online Quizfinder (questionone.com/london/events) so do feel free to contact your chosen venue for advice!


Should I come with my team or can I come alone ?

You can play alone if you wish but it’s more fun to play as a team. If you are desperate to quiz and can’t find a team then ask your Quizmaster to find you a team to play with!

Some quizzes are free, but entry fees usually range from £1 to £2 per player.
