Wow ... We're Full !!

The Bury St Edmunds Chess Congress takes place on the weekend of 7 and 8 October 2023.

Although we're currently full, there are usually a handful of players who have to withdraw from the event. Should that occur, we will re-open the entry form.

If you would like to receive an email from us when that happens, please use the link below to be added to the relevant section of our mailing list.
