The 2019 South West Chess Festival
The 2019 South West Chess Festival consists of the Royal Beacon Seniors Congress immediately followed by the Torbay Congress. The purpose of having the two congresses on adjacent dates is to simplify the logistics, and reduce the costs, for players wishing to participate in both these popular South Devon congresses.
