It's National Chess Week in the UK

From the Community Newswire:
A national children's charity is today celebrating after popular comedian and panto star Joe Pasquale took time out from his busy schedule to help launch the second National Chess Week.

National Chess Week, hosted by leading children's charity Barnardo's, encourages youngsters to put down the game controller, switch off the TV and engage their brains.

Throughout the week, which runs until January 30, events will take place nationwide including a 24-hour chess marathon, speed chess and an exhibition by a chess grand master.
