Peak District Weekend, 10th to 12th November 2017

Welcome to the very first Young Mensa weekend in the UK! From the 10th to the 12th of November, we will be taking over a converted farm house in the breathtaking Peak District for a weekend of socialising, fantastic views and perhaps a few board games. Join us - whether you are a weathered Mensan or this is your very first event, this will be a very memorable weekend!

  • Nab View Bunkhouse, Ollerbrook Farm, Friday 10th to Sunday 12th of November 2017

The Venue

We're taking over two bunkhouses consisting of large open-beamed living spaces with spectacular views of Kinder Scout, lounge areas, dining areas, kitchen, six bunk bedrooms, and multiple toilets and showers. We'll be providing food and snacks - bring your own booze.

The accomodation capacity for the weekend is 32 people across two bunkhouses, and will fill up fast, so book early to avoid disappointment.

EDIT: At the time of writing, only 6 spaces are left!

Included in the price:

  • Bed, sheets and pillow in a 6-person room
  • Food, snacks and soft drinks
  • A house full of lovely Mensans

  • Board games would also be much appreciated

Whom is it for?

British Mensa and international Mensa members. Being a MY-SIG event, like MY-Camp and MY-NY the approximate age of most attendees will be between 18 and 35, but there is no hard upper age limit - all who feel "young at heart" are welcome. The minimum age for the event is 18.

Getting there

The nearest train station to Ollerbrook Farm is Edale, which is located only 33 minutes on the train from Manchester, and 34 minutes from Sheffield with the East Midlands train line. The farmhouse is a short walk from the station. Free parking is also available on location.
