Online quiz will support the social enterprise and bring people together to celebrate Burns' contribution to Scottish culture
Invisible Cities, the social enterprise that trains people who have previously experienced homelessness - become walking tour guides of their own city, in Edinburgh, Manchester, Glasgow and York - will be hosting an online quiz to celebrate Burns Night.
Their official quiz master and Invisible (Edinburgh) guide has designed the special quiz for teams of up to six to enjoy online. All of the questions will be centered around Scottish Culture and there will be a few trick questions thrown in there too!
Zakia Moulaoui Guery, Founder & CEO of Invisible Cities comments, “We know this year, we will not be able to come together to enjoy our traditional Haggis, Neeps and Tatties. But with Invisible Cities, you can still invite a few friends to come together (virtual) for a special online quiz, in support of our work!”
The quiz will start at 6pm and can accommodate up to 6 teams - so those interested in attending are advised to book their spot promptly to avoid disappointment! Entry fee for the quiz is £30 per team and the winners will receive unique Scotland Goodie bags put together by the Invisible Cities team.

Burns Night is annually celebrated on 25th January in Scotland. It commemorates the life of the bard (poet) Robert Burns, who was born on January 25, 1759. The day also celebrates Burns' contribution to Scottish culture.
Invisible Cities is a social enterprise that doesn’t believe in labels or stereotypes. They want to show that everyone has great potential. They train people affected by homelessness to become walking tour guides of their own city and offer these alternative tours to tourists and locals. Their training focuses on confidence building, public speaking and customer service. They partner with professional tour guides to build bespoke tours and practice their routes.
