Chess & Bridge/BCM, 44 Baker St, London W1U 7RT.
020 7388 2404. Signing by 4 Time US Champion Yasser Seirawan of his book CHESS DUELS. If this is even half as good as 'THE FIVE CROWNS' – and I glanced through it with interest - then this is quite a publication. :shock: Q & A :shock: session from 6.30, signing from 5.

chess england tournament calendar

Official Staunton
Get your chess sets and boards for schools and clubs from Chess4Schools.

Here is a list of FIDE registered tournaments in England. There will be a separate entry for each section of each event (e.g. Golders Green Rapidplay = 4 sections, 4 registrations). If you see any of mine missing, do let me know! 

Scroll down to the bottom to access the archive of events. 

Only games where at least one of the players has a published standard FIDE rating will be rated, and included in the rating calculations of the unrated player. Where both players are rated, the game will affect both players and will be included in the calculations for both players.
