Living Chess in Javea (July 2019)

On the last weekend in July 2017, the Port Area of Javea will be changed into a supersized chess board with living chessmen performing theatre.

Since 1996 this event has been organised by the Fiesta Committee of Mare de Deu de Loreto in collaboration with the Town hall and the local Chess Club.

Staged by schoolchildren between 6 and 14 years, this particular style of performance is taken place on a chess board of extensive dimensions and combines chess with theatre, musical pieces and choreography. The viewer does not have to have knowledge of chess to be able to enjoy the performance!

Details on the 2019 event are not yet available. For guidance, please refer to the information provided below concerning the 2018 Living Chess event.

Don't miss this spectacular and unique opportunity!
