ELOC Christmas Quiz 16th December 2020 at 8.30pm

As time goes by, it seems more and more unlikely that we'll be able to enjoy our usual Christmas festivities this year.  BUT... that does not mean we can't get together virtually for some festive cheer instead! Following the success of the weekly ELOC quiz nights during the depths of the 2020 lockdown, we're excited to announce that we will be back for a one-off Christmas Special, ELOC Virtual Quiz Night! Hosted by our favourite in-house quiz master, Paul, join us for a night of friendly rivalry, with the usual musical-themed trivia, plus some festive Christmas questions thrown in for extra fun! With a live leaderboard revealed throughout, find out who will be the ELOC Christmas Quiz champion! Make sure you have some mulled wine and mince pies handy, as after the quiz, we'll be staying online for a little while for a virtual 'social' so we can all wish each other a merry Christmas!

How will it work?

The quiz will be played in the same format as earlier on this year.  If you were unable to take part, then here is how.  Everyone will join the quiz on Wednesday 16th December 2020 at 8.30pm in a Zoom Meeting, do this via a computer or tablet, somthing big enough that you can see everyone and also see the quiz.  Details for the Zoom meeting will be sent out nearer the time.  Once in the Zoom meeting, the quiz master will use an application called Kahoot to run the quiz.  Taking part is really easy.  On a smart phone, or an additional device, use either the Kahoot App or the Kahoot website to answer the questions.  So in summary:
