Chess saw a huge resurgence in 2020, with people staying close to home and the popularity of Netflix’s The Queen’s Gambit. Here is your chance to learn about the game that has fascinated people for centuries.

Presented by experienced, tournament chess players, the session introduces the rules of the game and explores basic tactics and strategies. Participants of all ages are welcome and no previous chess experience is necessary.
