A TOWN theatre is hosting an online quiz night to engage the community on World Theatre Day despite coronavirus isolation measures.

Darlington Hippodrome is hosting an arts and entertainment quiz, online, on Friday, March 27 at 7.30pm, to celebrate World Theatre Day.

Using video conferencing tool Zoom, there will be rounds on music, art, literature, films and more.

Families can take part as a team or an individual, though there will be no ‘winning’ prize.

Rebecca Howarth of Darlington Hippodrome said, “This way of engaging with the community is all very new to us and it may be a little rough around the edges, but the theatre is looking at new and exciting ways we can engage with the community to keep spirits up, have some fun and allow people some social interaction in these difficult times.”

If you are interested in taking part, visit the Darlington Hippodrome Facebook page and ‘attend’ the Virtual Quiz Night event.

Further details will be posted in the event on Friday evening. All you need to take part is internet access, a phone or laptop with a camera and a pen and paper for your answers.

The quiz will be open to the first 100 participants who access the Zoom event on the night, but don’t be disappointed if you miss out on this occasion as there will be future theatre events to get involved in.
