The role

As a Quiz Maker, you will have the opportunity to create and run your own local HogWhats quiz franchise under the Spectacular Pub Quiz brand. You will recruit a winning operations team, source the questions for the quiz, promote the quiz, and should have enough passion for Harry Potter to give each quiz a spectacular touch. You will need to commit to doing at least 2 quizzes (in your own time) to register as a Quiz Maker.

Each Quiz Maker will receive a Quiz Maker pack with all the information that you need to run your first few quizzes. We take the hassle out of managing ticket sales by setting you up on our online ticketing partner, leaving you more time to focus on crafting and promoting the quiz itself. We will provide you with £200 expenses per quiz ahead of your event (this is based on an event predicted to sell 100 tickets at £12.50 and may vary if you choose to do a larger or smaller event).



An average of 15-20 hours per quiz including the quiz night itself. The work can be done in your own time and to fit in with your schedule.



What you will be doing:

  • Recruiting a team of 1-2 volunteers to help you run the event on the night

  • Recruiting a quizmaster (who will read the questions)

  • Finding an appropriate venue to host the quiz

  • Modifying the running order templates to create runsheets and a programme for your quizzes
