Where does the money from the tickets go?
Money raised from the quiz will help us pay our homeless, formerly homeless and vulnerably housed Tour Guides who are currently unable to work due to the lockdown. 60% of the money raised will go directly to the guides who help curate the quiz. The remaining 40% will be used for our operational costs, allowing us to continue providing mobile phones and other support during this time.
Who created the quiz?
Our brilliant tour guides have curated all of the questions based on their unmatched knowledge of London.
What equipment do I need for the quiz?
The quiz will take place live on Zoom on Thursday 18th June at 8pm BST. The quiz will last around 90 minutes. All you need is a laptop, smartphone or tablet, access to the internet, and the Zoom application installed on your device. We will send you a Zoom link together with a password on the morning of the quiz.
Is there a maximum team size?
We will not be strictly policing team sizes, but we recommend up to 5 people per team.
Can my team be split across multiple locations?
Yes! You can team up with any mates that are isolating somewhere else – you’ll just need a separate channel to communicate with each other during the quiz (WhatsApp is an easy option). You will only have to submit one set of answers per team.
How will the quiz be scored?
You will receive a link to a Google form where you’ll write your answers. We will ask you to submit the form at half time and at the end of the quiz. We will then score your answers while we run through the answers.
Are there prizes on offer?
Of course! We are giving away free tickets for our award-winning walking tours of London, led by formerly homeless and vulnerably housed Londoners. These can be redeemed at any time once the lockdown is lifted. Read more about our tours at unseentours.org.uk.
How will the prize winners be notified?
After the quiz is complete, we will tot up the scores and announce the winners. If your team comes out on top, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. (We will run through all this on the day, don’t worry).
Is the quiz suitable for children?
Yes, the quiz is suitable for the whole family (no rude or after watershed questions). However, the questions are more geared towards grown-up knowledge.
