Chessboxing Season Opener 2015

A sporting hybrid unlike any you’ve ever seen

It started out as a joke in an Amsterdam art gallery in 2003, but has since flourished into a fully fledged sporting event. A simple concept really – play four minutes of chess, followed by two minutes of boxing. The one who reigns victorious does so either by knockout or checkmate. The headline bout is an unmissable battle of youth against experience, as ex-undefeated world champion and England's finest, Terry Marsh, takes on Italy's Filipo Gubbini. And don't forget about the legendary afterparty DJs and special guest cabaret. It’s a night jam-packed with a punch (pun very much intended). Over 18s only. Afterparty till late. Doors open at 6.45pm, start time is 8pm.
