Event Details

40th Anniversary of Mensa at Cambridge

5th – 8th September 2019

Queens' College, Cambridge


The theme will be

Gifted Adults

Brilliant innovation and extraordinary contributions.

“There are many confusing notions about what giftedness is and is not. Indeed, in several respects,

the life experience of the gifted individual seems paradoxical

(e.g., being considered highly successful while secretly feeling like an impostor).”


The prestigious event will this year be held in the stunning surrounds of Queens’ College, which dates back to the 15th century. The college has a fascinating history (and an interesting tale about that errant apostrophe in the name), and includes actor and writer Stephen Fry, journalist Emily Maitlis and comedian Mark Watson amongst its alumni and is home to the world famous Mathematical bridge.
