Every Wednesday at 6pm we’ll be testing your knowledge and your reaction speeds, with our online interactive quiz with Coca-Cola.
Using technology from our partners at RedTooth, you’ll watch a live stream of a pub quiz and take part in fastest finger first games through the SmartQuiz app.
Make sure you visit The Lock Inn on the Greene King Brewery Facebook page to RSVP to the Facebook event for the quiz each week, to get a notification when the event starts. If you don't have Facebook, don't worry, you can still join using the instructions below!
To take part you need to follow these simple instructions, but if you have any problems, head over to the Greene King Brewery Facebook page to ask a question.
All our events and activities are free of charge. Our only ask is that if you’ve enjoyed yourself and been entertained, that you make a donation (whatever you can afford) to our charity partner, Macmillan Cancer Support.
LIMITED SPACES AVAILABLE. ARRIVE EARLY TO ENSURE YOU DON'T MISS OUT!

All our events and activities are free of charge. Our only ask is that if you’ve enjoyed yourself and been entertained, that you make a donation (whatever you can afford) to our charity partner, Macmillan Cancer Support. Macmillan nurses, like all carers, have continued to work and care for high risk patients during this crisis, and we’d like to use our virtual pub as an opportunity to raise essential funds and support for the charity.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The pin for the quiz will be shown on the YouTube Live Stream around 10 minutes before the event is due to start
Unfortunately we are only able to accomodate a certain number of people per game, however you can still play along to the YouTube video with friends and family, you just won't appear on the leaderboard!
Unfortunately the common cause of YouTube videos buffering is poor internet network or Wi-Fi signal.
1. Move your device closer to the router where possible.
2. Connect via a wired connection if you are able to do so
3. Ensure no-one in your household is also using the internet, which may be slowing down your internet.
4. Stop running programs on your device that you don't need that may be using up your internet.
While these are not guaranteed to fix the issue, they are some simple tips to try if you are having trouble!
Please note we have been made aware of scam links circulating, please remember ALL of our activities and events are free of charge and ONLY follow links listed in the details of this event, if in doubt, send us a message and we'll be happy to advise.
Of course! You can still enter the quiz without Facebook, simply download the App, and head to the YouTube link above around 15 minutes before the game starts, and you are ready to go!
Unfortunately you will ideally need two devices to play along, as they work together to provide the best possible quiz experience! You are welcome to play along with the quiz using the Youtube stream, you just won't be able to access the App features at the same time with one device.
Simply RSVP on the Facebook event on our Greene King Brewery page, and you will receive a notification from Facebook to let you know that the event is about to start.
