IS THERE A THEME THIS YEAR?
The 2021 theme is I WOKE UP LIKE THIS. As it’s an online event think about how you will look on Zoom… Do you wake up looking like a zombie? Or glamorous? Maybe you’re more like Hugh Hefner or Marilyn Monroe when you wake up? Best dressed will win a prize so get thinking!
CAN WE WATCH THE EVENT IN GROUPS?
Definitely! Depending on restrictions at the time of the event, we encourage all families who are fully vaccinated to form groups to watch the event together. We do ask each single or couple from each household to purchase a ticket each.
DO WE ALL NEED DEVICES IF WATCHING AS A GROUP?
Yes and no. If you have a smart TV, you can watch the event on your TV. You can also stream from a projector so you could do this as a group. If not, for ease of viewing, we recommend a maximum of 2 people per computer or laptop. When it comes to participating in trivia or bingo, this would need to be done through a second device like a phone or tablet so we can track individual prize winners.
HOW DO I ACCESS ZOOM ON THE NIGHT?
A link will be emailed to you on Friday 22nd October. Join the Zoom call via your laptop, desktop computer or smart TV. The Zoom screen will show our hosts who are MC for the night and provide sponsorship information. Zoom link will be sent to the email used to purchase the tickets. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you don’t receive this Zoom email.
DO I HAVE TO HAVE MY CAMERA ON FOR THE ZOOM?
Camera is only essential if you would like to participate in Best Dressed or need to show you have won a Bingo round.
HOW ARE THE GAMES PLAYED ONLINE?
There will be 3 Kahoot! Trivia rounds and 3 Bingo rounds.
Trivia will be played using a game-based online platform called Kahoot! You can download the app prior to the event, or use the web browser on your phone at https://kahoot.it
Bingo sheets will be accessed via a QR code on the night. Your host will put up a QR code on the screen that will link you to a unique bingo sheet. To generate a new bingo sheet after each round, click the bottom-right of the web page (the 3 horizontal lines), then click NEW.
CHEESE BOXES - HOW DO I COLLECT MY ORDER?
Cheese boxes can be collected from Brick Lane Espresso on Saturday 23rd October between 9am and 2pm. Please take the receipt emailed to you (at the time your ordered) to show proof of purchase.
SILENT AUCTION – HOW DO I BID?
You will need to be registered to bid on any item. Go to https://app.galabid.com/wpps/register
The silent auction is now open to bids and will continue throughout the entire campaign and close at the end of Trivia Night. At the end of each auction, all bids are final.

LIVE AUCTION – HOW DO I BID?
Live Auctions are also listed on and bid through Galabid. You will need to be registered to bid on live auction items.
There will be 5 live auctions available to bid on during the night for a limited period. Your host will let you know when the auction opens and closes. At the end of each auction, all bids are final.

I’D LIKE TO JOIN A GROUP, IS IT POSSIBLE TO CONNECT ME TO OTHER PEOPLE?
