  • Visitor Information

The World Memory Championships returns to its London roots this year, after a two year stay in China. The sport was founded in London by Raymond Keene OBE and Tony Buzan back in 1991 and it is welcomed back to the city in a bid to promote the benefits of memory training to a new young generation. Some of the world's most impressive memory competitors will come together at the Lilian Baylis Technology School in Kennington for what promises to be a show to remember, quite literally.
