MKULTRA is an open tournament first held in 2015 Milton Keynes, United Kingdom. Conceived by Emma Laslett, MKULTRA is characterised by its greater emphasis on popular culture compared to most quizbowl tournaments, being given a similar weighting in the distribution to more 'classic' quizbowl subjects such as science, history and literature. Originally hosted at York House in Milton Keynes, the tournament has been held annually since its inception, albeit with a break from 2020-22. MKULTRA returned for its sixth edition in 2023, having moved to larger premises at Denbigh School, with 26 teams in attendance.
