Lambeth History Unlocked Talk 16 Dec 21Movers and Takers by Martin Smith

16 December 21

Movers and Takers’, just published by the Streatham Society in conjunction with Streatham and Brixton Chess Club follows the 150-year history of the club, and the chess players, local and national, who lived hereabouts – and maybe died hereabouts as well. Streatham Cemetery can boast a tally of six Victorian chess players whose off-board diversions are the subject of this talk by Movers and Takers author Martin Smith. You don’t need to play chess to follow the talk, or enjoy the book!

The title of this illustrated talk on Thursday 16 December at 7pm is Movers and Takers.

The talk is Free to attend and is online only. It is held on Zoom so please book your place in good time!
