London Chess Classic Ticket Sales and Entry Forms
All proceeds raised from tickets sales will again go towards supporting the Chess in Schools and Communities charity. In 2011, more than 600 children came to the London Chess Classic for free chess lessons from GMs, IMs and top chess coaches. This year the organisers aim to increase the number of invitations to schools for free lessons and free tuition. The London Chess Classic team will also be regularly updating their new FaceBook page with event details, historical chess facts, trivia and competitions. You can also follow them on Twitter @londonclassic. The entry form(s) are also now available at the official website to download for the many side events running alongside the Classic. The main festival events taking place are:
• FIDE Rated Open: Sat 1 - Sun 9 December.
• 2 x Weekend Tournaments, Weekend Classic A: Saturday 1 - Sunday 2 December
• and Weekend Classic B: Friday 7 - Sunday 9 December.
• 2 x Rapidplays: Rapidplay A: Sun 2 December, Rapidplay B: Sun 9 December.
• Classic Blitz: Every evening from Saturday 1 to Sunday 9 December.
