Social distancing protocols mean that we should stay inside to help stop the spread of COVID-19, but that doesn’t mean we have to stop having fun and interacting with other Potter fans.
Child.org, a charity based in the United Kingdom, is taking its popular Harry Potter pub quiz online on Saturday, March 21, at 6 p.m. GMT.

Wizardry: A Spectacular Quarantine Quiz will bring Potter fans together as they test their knowledge of the wizarding world and raise money for charity from the comfort of their own homes. The Spectacular Pub Quizzes team at Child.org has been running pub quizzes in London since 2017, but this is the first time the team will be taking its quiz into the virtual world, offering those in isolation a chance to connect with others:
Our Spectacular Quarantine Quiz will be really good fun, connecting people in isolation all over the world. We hope fans of Harry Potter, and regulars at our Spectacular Pub Quizzes, will enjoy doing something positive to support our small charity through a really difficult time. Whether you’re a big Harry Potter fan, or just enjoy silly events, this event will offer something for everyone.
Due to the impact of this outbreak of coronavirus, Child.org has recently seen a drop in income. Despite this, this small charity is working hard to protect the communities it works with in Kenya. To help raise money to respond to the challenges presented by COVID-19, Child.org is asking for a suggested donation of £5 to join the quiz.
Anyone with an Internet connection is welcome to join the quiz on Saturday evening. There will be trivia questions to suit all levels, as well as games, puzzles, and music questions.
To sign up for the quiz, head to the Spectacular Pub Quizzes website and sign up for the mailing list. You will be sent a link to the live quiz on Saturday.
The Spectacular Pub Quizzes team is hoping to move most of its quizzes online, so keep your eyes peeled for other pop-culture and fandom-based quizzes, from Friends to the Office, and even Sherlock!
