Golden Weekend in York

Mensa Ouse Cruise, York

Over 300 Mensans visited York last weekend (20-23 September) for the society’s Annual Gathering. The event has grown over the years from a social meeting to coincide with the official AGM to a full weekend of talks, walks, excursions and much more. In recent years host cities have included Belfast, Coventry, Chester and Bristol, as the event continues to move around the British Isles. Next year we’re already signed up for Cardiff.

Highlights included the All Gold Gala Dinner, trips to York’s attractions including York Minster and Jorvik Viking Centre, games competitions, intellectual talks and the chance to meet other members socially in one place.
