Whatever your quiz style, one thing we all have in common is a brain packed with stuff: facts, figures, tunes and skills we've gathered over time. In The Mighty Quiz, all this makes you powerful!


What is the Mighty Quiz?

The Mighty Quiz is Alzheimer’s Research UK’s fundraising quiz. It’s the perfect way to bring together your family, friends and colleagues for a brilliant night of trivia and challenges to raise money for dementia research.

Quizmasters will be challenging the nation throughout the year to go head to head for dementia research. You can hold your quiz whenever suits you, we recommend a Thursday night in December for a proper festive night!

How do I hold a Mighty Quiz?

Firstly figure out a date for your quiz and choose a suitable venue. Then invite your quiz mates. Think about which rounds you want to include and let people know if there’s anything they need to get ready beforehand (e.g. props or things such as newspaper for the dress up round, or paper and pen for the drawing round). For more details on what you need to do, download the pack and get quizzing 

How do I hold a virtual Mighty Quiz?
