The Kings Place Festival, sponsored by DeMontford Bell, is back for a fifth year. Hundreds of players will each enjoy six games of chess. Whether they be serious contenders or young hopefuls they will participate in one of the best chess tournaments in London, and perhaps the UK.

The top four sections are FIDE rated and all sections are ECF graded.

This year will also see the return of the My First Chess Tournament Under 85. Six games of tournament chess – ECF graded, no membership of a chess club is required; ideal for your first foray into the world of competitive chess. Get a grade in one tournament!

For any additional queries, please email organiser Adam Raoof at adamraoof@gmail.com. A copy of the tournament rules will be available on the day and all entries need to be submitted before the day.
