Project 30 brought an unprecedented number of special events to Teesside during 2017-8.
At the conclusion of the year of events I stated that certain elements would return for 2018-9 and there would be some new additions too.
I can now reveal the opening event of Project 30's second year will be a talk and simultaneous display by none other than top chess author and FIDE Master Steve Giddins.
This will take place on Friday 17 August.
This exciting event will be suitable for both adults and juniors.
Meanwhile, it is a good time to familiarise yourself with some of the chess books Steve has written, starting with this handy list.
Steve will be very happy to sign copies of his books on the day.
Further details will be released in due course. Stay tuned!
