A 17th Century fort which has played a major military role over more than 400 years was the destination for Irish Mensa's latest event.

Members headed to Elizabeth Fort in Cork to find out about its history, from the original fort built in 1601 to the 19th Century incarnation still in use as a Garda station.

Smart quizzers are being sought for two BBC television shows.

Make Me an Egghead, which will find two new regular panellists for the BBC2 hit Eggheads, and new show Debatable, which will also be screened on BBC2, are both looking for knowledgeable and confident contestants to take part.

Hosted by Jeremy Vine, Make Me an Egghead is a nationwide search to find one man and one woman who are good enough to join the Eggheads, considered the UK’s most fearsome quiz team.

Sebastian Carrington and Dixie Egerickx

Two talented young Mensa members have been making waves in the performing arts world.

Ten-year-olds Sebastian Carrington, from the West Midlands, and Dixie Egerickx, from London, have been making a name for themselves in the highly-competitive arenas of music and acting.

Sebastian has not only achieved distinctions in his Grade 8 singing and piano exams – an unusual achievement even for students 10 years older – but he also got to perform for royalty at Buckingham Palace.

Have you ever thought you could be the next James Bond or Violette Szabo?

Would-be spies are being sought for a new Channel 4 television show being created by Minnow Films. It aims to show the recruitment and training process involved in becoming a spy, and will explore the type of person it takes to serve the country under cover.

The producers are looking for a group of 20 men and women to attempt a course based on elements of the authentic recruitment and training phases of Britain’s intelligence services.

This year’s photographic competition was a great success. More than 20 entries were received, and we are happy to show them all here. The subject for 2016 was British Birds, and the standard of entries was, as usual, very high indeed. So high, in fact, that although the judges found a clear winner they could not decide on a runner up, and we have awarded two equal runner up prizes this year.

Congratulations to Pete, Kat and John, and many thanks to all the other members who entered the competition.
