Yes, it looks like there will be a world memory championship this year!
Hi all, Thanks for your patience. We are really pleased to announce the details for the 21st World Memory Championship.
It will return to London for the Olympic and Queen's Jubilee year. The dates are confirmed as December 14 15 and 16, 2012
The venue will be The Lilian Baylis School, Kennington Lane, London.
The area is very close to the centre of London and is furnished with many reasonably priced hotels and restaurants.
Bringing the World Championship to a school in central London creates a magnificent opportunity to inspire and empower the capitals schoolchildren and create role models for young and developing minds.
Further details will be released soon
Say what you like, I think it can only be a good thing for the competition to return to its roots as a low-budget affair in a school's assembly hall - it badly overreached itself in the last couple of years. From this kind of starting point, maybe we can build a more stable and successful regular competition? Anyway, that's your World Championship, I don't know yet if I'll be there, but I'll let you know.
