Chess Fest, Trafalgar Square, 16th July 2023

Several Sussex juniors travelled to Trafalgar Square yesterday to enjoy Chess Fest – a fun and free event staged by Chess in Schools & Communities.

Some of the events on offer included a living chess set where professional actors took on the role of chess pieces recreating famous chess games; and a “Challenge the Chess Master” tent.

Many of the UK’s top titled players took part, including our own SJC President GM David Howell, and SJC Coach IM Tom Rendle.

Pictured are Layth and Euan with GM David Howell, and Nayan after his draw with IM Tom Rendle.
