Hereford Chess Club's 50th centeniary coincides with a painting's 200th birthday.

Founded on November 29th 1812, the back of the painting below, called 'Hereford Chess Club' shows possibly the first chess club outside London in the UK. The painting is on display at Hereford Museum.
To read more click here A fun chess tournament organized by Alan Leary, was been held in the museum over several days, and won by Roger Aris with 4½/5. Hopefully a few spectators will want to come to the Herdsman on Monday evening and play a few games of chess. See Hereford Museum's facebook page, and Streatham and Brixton chess club's blog.
