I must also thank Chess and Bridge who provided all the equipment for the event, ran the chess stall and generously provided prizes for the winners of the best game prizes for the simultaneous exhibitions.

A couple of pieces of media:

Telegraph and Argus - Chess festival held in honour of late MP Marsha Singh

Bradford Community Radio did a live broadcast from the event and before that, did a tribute to Marsha Singh MP.

Sorry I didn’t make it Andy, never actually heard anything from organisers but was planning to come until I went out on Friday night and we got a bit over enthusiastic with beer - woke up around the time the simul was just kicking off, with a banging headake. Glad to hear it went well and looking forward to Bradford Congress this weekend :)
