I have been fascinated with the ability of memory champs for as long as I can remember (pun intended). This event is in London, England.
I highly recommend adding a thorough understanding and mastery of memorization tricks to your home schooling. You can start with viewing interviews of past memory champs at http://www.worldmemorychampionship.com/VIDEOSWMC.asp.
