Fun Palaces

Barnsley chess club joined in the Fun Palaces event at the Lightbox.
Thanks to Vlad, John, Tony and Shane who all came to help out.
We had some interest from adults who had played in the past and quite a few youngsters who were fascinated by the sets and clocks. Perhaps they will be the players of the future.
We raised our profile with the public, featured on Barnsley Libraries social media accounts and left some info with the library staff in the event of enquiries.
Whether this bears any fruit only time will tell!
You can see our set up below which included Vlad’s stunning chess themed paintings.
