Community Chess (FREE Chess Game)
Sat 27 August 2016, 14:00 – 17:00 BST
Our Opening Gala tells the true story of Eugene Brown, an ex-convict who used chess to transform the lives of at risk young people in his community.
To celebrate our opening, we are hosting an open Community Chess exhibition that anyone in the community can take part in.
There is a simultaneous 10 Board multiplay where one chess Master plays up to 10 people at the same time. This is your chnaceto pit your skills against a real chess master. The best player receives a chess set signed by Eugene Brown at the Opening Gala.
For those who are completely new to the game, there is also a Free Giant chess game with a guide on hand to teach you how the game works and with each move representing a hero from the Black community or an under-represented group that you can celebrate with us.
Book your space in advance to guarantee your place.
The festival encourages people from all walks of life to come together.
