With just over 40 days to go until Somerset Day, we officially launch our 2023 campaign on 2nd April and we need your help please !
In conjunction with BBC Radio Somerset, we’re aiming to host Somerset’s BIGGEST EVER Quiz – a virtual and actual pub quiz that will take place on Friday 12th May between 7pm and 9pm. Anyone can join in and take part in the quiz hosted live by BBC Radio Somerset, but the quiz isn’t going to be limited to the BBC Radio Somerset – we want to encourage pubs, village halls, community centres, schools, care homes, in fact anywhere, to take part by hosting a quiz on the same night and at the same time and raise funds for local good causes.
You can help by –
- Organising a quiz on your premises or in a community centre or local pub
- Encouraging colleagues, friends, communities and organisations to take part by joining the live quiz on BBC Radio Somerset
- Getting them to organise a quiz in their local pub, village hall, community centre, school, care home etc
- Posting the attached graphics on your Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn channels (with a link to the downloads on the Somerset day website)
- Putting the Get Involved poster up in your business, on your village or town notice boards and in your local pub
- Giving the poster to your local school and encouraging them to take part
