Do you want to be the next Grandmaster of Chess? Or perhaps the next Beth Harmon from the Queen’s Gambit? Then join us for our Learn to Play Chess classes. These classes for children aged 8-13 will focus on setting up your chess board, how chess pieces move, and general game play.

Meet us in the Kathleen Glenn Room on Level 2 of the Central Library - no registration required. All equipment is provided, and donations are welcomed.

Under Alert Level 2 and 3 this programme will take place online. Please register using the form below and we will send you the link to join the classes.
