Roy Walker features as your quiz host and each of our celebrities is hosting two different rounds and has recorded the quiz questions and answers. There are also some short videos to watch along the way.

All we ask is that you make a donation to the ZSA for using our quiz.

How can I play with others online?

If you’re setting up an online quiz night with others, you can use platforms such as Microsoft Teams or Zoom to arrange your group catch up and one of you can share the video on screen to play along to.

You can share how you’re getting on and promote that you’re supporting the ZSA Big Quiz on social media using the hashtag #ZSABigQuiz 

Where do I find the quiz?

The ZSA Big Quiz will be on our YouTube channel and embedded on our Competitor Area webpage.

Is the quiz interactive?

This hasn’t been developed as an interactive quiz. To try and make this as accessible and easy as possible so everyone can enjoy the quiz, the quiz is in a video format that is hosted on our YouTube channel and embedded on our Competitor Area webpage.

If you’re playing this virtually with others, this is something you can play along to with through platforms such as Microsoft Teams or Zoom by arranging a call that you all join.

Will there be a winner?

The quiz is about having some fun whilst raising awareness and money for a great cause – which makes us all winners.  

If you’re getting together with friends, family or colleagues or are planning to host an event, you may want to organise your own prize.
