Here is an overview of the events that run every month in the North West. To double check the schedule and for information about how to contact the hosts, head to the North West's section of the Mensa website or to our regional Facebook page.
First Monday of the Month Social
Perfect for a first foray into Mensa meetings, or an overdue catch up with old friends, in a private setting. We meet in the function room at The Tavern, Widnes, WA8 9AF. Come along for pleasant chat, and new acquaintances.
Lunch in Lancashire
On the first Thursday of every month there is a lunch in Lancashire, usually alternating between the Sea View in Chorley and the Eagle & Child in Leyland. Both are traditional style, warm and welcoming pubs; you can expect a great lunch and lively conversation.
Gina has written about these events in the January 2020 edition of the North West's newsletter, NoW.
Midweek Drinks & Discuss
These events are on the second Wednesday of each month in Bar21, Manchester and are designed to instigate conversation and introspection among our members. As well as the usual lively organic conversation, we have an interlude where we discuss a topic that we hope will be of interest to Mensans. These are aimed at under 35s, but everyone is welcome.
Pub Quiz in Sale
The third Thursday of every month has a pub quiz at the Samuel Brooks in Sale. There is good food and good conversation available.
Third Sunday of the Month Lunch
Long-standing pub lunch meet at the Stanley Arms Hotel, Wildboarclough. Usual meeting place is the side room to the right of the bar. Friendly bunch of regulars, and new members are very welcome.
Third Monday of the Month Pub Meet
Beautiful Grange-Over-Sands hosts our monthly pub meet up at the Commodore Inn, in Cumbria. Join us for a chinwag and a jar.
Pub Quiz on the Wirral
Out on the Wirral we have a pub quiz most months, either at the Ship Inn in Hoylake or the Greave Dunning in Greasby. Pub quiz league schedules and also football schedules make this one a little more difficult to give you a recurring day each month; check the Mensa website and our regional Facebook page for up to date information.
Pub Social in Stockport
Usually the fourth Wednesday of the month, The Duke of York, Romiley, hosts a casual and friendly meeting for Mensans. Come along for a drink and a chat in a lovely 18th century village pub. Look out for a large Mensa logo, on the table. Partners/friends very welcome.
