BMUN XIV cancelled for visiting schools

With regret I have been informed by SMT today that we are going to have to cancel BMUN14 for visiting schools, primarily due to the uncertainty created by the new Omicron variant.

You will appreciate this decision has not been taken lightly. The Student Officers and myself are hugely disappointed but we believe on balance it is of course the right decision to make.

On the day we will be attempting to have a smaller, in-house conference with just one or two committees. Apologies that we will not be offering an online BMUN14 alternative.

Provisional date for next year: Monday 5 December 2022.

More information for BMUN XV will be released in June 2022.

BMUN XIV – Monday 6 December 2021

We very much look forward to welcoming schools to our conference in just over two months’ time. With all the current Covid caveats we are preparing for a fully in-person conference and plans are well advanced. For all who have applied we aim to send out your allocation of countries and committees in the next few days. We hope briefing reports will be out after the Half Term break.  Contact us at if you have any queries.

BMUN XIII – will be running as a ‘Benenden-only event’ this year

Apologies, due to ongoing Covid-19 uncertainty we are holding an internal-only conference at Benenden, in the hope we can do some MUN debating in person. We are opting to not run the BMUN conference as an online conference.

We did not take this decision lightly and are sorry to the schools that were looking forward to joining us. Next year!

Keep MUN-ing and hopefully see you in 2021 for BMUN XIV. Provisional date Monday 6 December 2021.

More information for BMUN XIV will be released in June 2021.

BMUN – it’s over… until next year

Many thanks to all schools who came along to Benenden School’s Eleventh Model United Nations Conference. We enjoyed hosting you all. Congratulations to everyone, especially the award winners (but also to many first timers for getting stuck in!)

Mark your calendars for next year:

BMUNXII is Monday 9 December 2019.

Invitations will be sent out as usual just before the Summer holidays.

BMUN XI – 10 December 2018

We are looking forward to welcoming you to our Eleventh MUN conference. The finishing touches are being made to Briefing Papers and they will be uploaded soon. Keep doing your own preparation and research in the meantime. Many thanks to the schools who have now submitted the names of their delegates to our Sec-Gen.

BMUN XI – provisional date

Save the date: mark your calendars in pencil with Monday 10 December 2018 for the Eleventh Benenden Model United Nations conference.

Application information will be sent out before the summer holidays next year.

BMUN over for another year

BMUN10 drew to a close yesterday evening. Another successful MUN conference – we hope you all enjoyed the experience. Commiserations to those schools who were unable to travel yesterday. We missed you, and your contributions – but we still had a really stimulating day of debate.
