As the project nears it's end, the group spent the first half of the workshop watching the first part of a video of 'Grass Arena', a dramatisation of the life of John Heaney, who, through the face of adversity, went on to become a chess Grand Master after being introduced to the great game whilst in prison.

The second half of the workshop, was dedicated to playing chess, with the group split into pairs and each playing an hour long game. It was evident that all players had done well to not only remember chess moves, but employing some good gaming strategies too.
