Frequently Asked Questions

Below you can find answers to our most popular (non-film trivia-related) questions. And if you can't find the answer you're looking for, drop us an email.

How is it different to any other pub quiz?

You’re Gonna Need A Bigger Boat is a multimedia extravaganza projected onto a big screen (the only way a quiz dedicated entirely to movies should be shown!). We don't just ask you questions about films, we show you!

What does it cost?

A ticket to the quiz show costs £6 per person. You can buy your ticket from staff when you arrive. For the Hackney Attic and Upstairs at The Ritzy in Brixton, you can also buy online in advance from their websites (which we would recommend to avoid disappointment).

Where is the quiz held?

We screen each month's quiz three times across London: once at the Hackney Attic (Hackney Picturehouse cinema) and then twice at Brixton at the Upstairs at the Ritzy bar above the Ritzy Cinema (please note this is the same quiz!). There’s also an additional screening of the quiz in Oxford at Big Society.

What time does it start?

We start handing out quiz sheets around 7pm ready for a 7.30pm start. However, to ensure you get a good seat, get a round in and be ready for our intro video, you should aim to be there as early as you can!

How many people do I need/can I have on a team?

We don’t have any restrictions on team size. You can have as many or as few people as you like. However, if your group is particularly large we may ask you to split into two smaller teams.

Can I reserve a table?

We do not take reservations for individual teams - so it's first come, first served as far as seating goes. However, all tables are set aside for people playing the quiz.

What can I win?

The winners and runners up get to select from film-related goodies including cinema tickets, T-shirts, DVD/Blu-ray boxsets etc.

We also have a STOP! round, where the first person to guess the answer from a list of clues wins a spot prize.

What sorts of questions do you ask?

If your idea of a pub quiz is some old fella reading questions from a scrappy bit of paper, then think again (though we are getting on a bit now). The Bigger Boat film quiz is a big-screen, big-sound experience, bringing you pictures, posters, clips and soundtracks from the world of movies.

Why do I recognise the name?

It's a very famous quote from a very famous film. And if you already know which one, you're in the top half of the scoreboard already!
