Donations to our local charities are welcome!

Carnival Chess Competition

Participants enter the competition via the Festival chess site (you will need to register here to receive a link).

Each participant will receive a selection of 20 problems to solve in 20 minutes from our Junior library. Participants will record their answers on the site, where full guidance can be found.

Our chess-master will collate and classify responses for the duration and produce a results sheet, to be announced on Judgement Day!

Top 3 solvers will receive a prize. Champion will receive a trophy. All young Malmesbury solvers will receive a 'Kids Chess Workbook' by our multiple world champion John Nunn.


We are not charging for tickets this year but if you enjoy the virtual Carnival events,
we invite you to make a small donation towards the local charities we are supporting.

Thank you!
