New weekly chess sessions

Chess board with white and black pieces

The new year brings fun and games to Slough Libraries Culture with a variety of sessions for all ages including Chess, Coding and STEM activities.

Drop in chess sessions are starting in January for people to play and learn more about the popular board game of Chess. The free sessions, which are starting early in the New Year, are for all ages over 8 years and all experience levels. Slough’s Libraries & Culture Service have linked with organisation Chess in Schools and Communities, who support over 200 libraries in the UK, to enable trained library staff and volunteers to explain the rules and general themes of Chess at each session. The Service is also eager to encourage the inter-generational nature of playing Chess and adults are welcome to attend.

Sessions run weekly beginning Saturday 18 January at both Cippenham Library, from 12noon to 2pm, and The Curve from 3pm to 4.30pm. Britwell Library Sessions will run midweek beginning on Thursday 20th February at 2.30 – 3.30pm (note subsequent sessions will run from 3.30 – 4.30pm).
