Every word counts

The Stagetext Culture Quiz!

The competition is now closed! Thank you so much to everyone who donated and took part in our quiz, your generosity is really helping us a lot during this lockdown. We'll be announcing the lucky winner on Wednesday 6 May, so keep your fingers crossed!


Today charities across the country are celebrating the 2.6 Challenge, which has been set up to help raise money for charities that have been affected by the current crisis.
Stagetext has been hugely affected by the closure of theatres and cultural venues across the UK. As part of the 2.6 Challenge, we’ve created a fun and challenging 26 question quiz on theatre and culture, so you and your friends can test your knowledge while supporting Stagetext.
Your donation gives you access to the 26 written questions which you can complete online and submit to us. Each answer begins with a different letter of the alphabet (though not in alphabetical order, just to make it trickier), and whoever answers the most questions correctly wins!
It costs £2.60 to enter, though if you can donate more than the minimum entry fee it would go a long way to helping Stagetext during this period.
See the full details of the quiz, the prizes, and how to enter at: virginmoneygiving.com/fund/StagetextCultureQuiz


We can’t offer huge cash prizes, but the winner will receive fanfare on our website, a personalised congratulations video from our CEO, Melanie Sharpe, and a few of our Stagetext goodies, including pens, pencils, and badges!

The Rules (and they couldn’t be simpler):

  • The quiz will be launched and made available on Sunday 26 April at 2:06pm and will be available for one week
  • Pay your entry fee/donation
  • Answer 26 questions on our online quiz
  • The quiz will close on Sunday 3 May at 2:06, so there’s no need to rush
  • The highest score wins
  • In the event of a draw all highest scorers will be placed in a lucky dip, with the winner being picked at random.
  • The winner will be announced on Wednesday 6 May, along with the full list of answers.

Thank you so much for taking part and having fun with us, we can’t wait to see your answers!
