International Chessboxing: The Italian Job Featuring Terry Marsh

A sporting hybrid unlike any you’ve ever seen

"Mad fun."

- Time Out
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. Tonight's an England vs Italy showdown spectacular, followed by a screening of the World Cup match on the big screens. Former undefeated boxing world champion Terry Marsh will be making a special appearance, fighting Chris "The Ventriloquist" Powell. Plus don't forget about the legendary after-party DJs and special guest cabaret. It’s a night jam-packed with a punch (pun very much intended). General admission. Over 18s Only. Pizza and pies available all night. Party till 3am.
