Event: ChessFest

On 18 July there will a day of chess activities in London, drawing on the chess theme of Lewis Carroll’s “Through the Looking-Glass”.

There will be free chess lessons, chess tables to play with each other, a speed chess challenge, a blindfold chess exhibition, and more. Notable there will be a human chess game based around “Through the Looking-Glass”, performed by professional actors. Children are encouraged to dress up as characters from “Through the Looking-Glass” – but I say: if you’re an adult, go for it as well! 🙂

Date: 18 July 2021 (The festival is actually from 16 to 18 July, but the first two days of activities are not open to the public.)
Time: 11.00 – 18.00
Location: Trafalgar Square, London, UK
