SpeedQuiz Live!!

It's our pub quiz with a difference. You sit at home in your teams while I fire questions at you over a Zoom link. You enter your answer in a special app on your smartphone and the results and leaderboard are shown as we go.

Each question has a time limit which is chosen according to the level of difficulty. Entering the answers is straightforward - a letter or perhaps a number for example. You do not need typing skills or any technical knowledge to take part.

You can have as many people in your team as you like, subject always to the prevailing guidelines. All you need per team is a smartphone or tablet (Apple or Android) for the keypad, and a computer or tablet to run the Zoom videoconference.

The style is family pub quiz, so everyone can have a go. Entry is free.

To enter a team and to receive full instructions, please email me at quiz@cockfield.org.uk.

Have a go!!!

In line with the staged plan for the easing of lockdown restrictions, Cockfield Cinema resumes. For this screening we are obliged to observe the 50% capacity and social distancing guidelines as we did for the months before lockdown. Next month, assuming the stage plan is on track, we will be able to run a full cinema evening, just like the old days!

We will announce the film for this evening in due course.

Doors open 7pm, 7.30 pm start.

  • To assist with seating on the day, if reserving 2-4 places you will be asked for the number of family units – i.e. who are not socially distancing amongst themselves.
