Here are details for a Shogi tournament and display at the Spitalfields Market Japanese Festival.

Place - Spitalfields Market in East London
Format - three round shogi tournament at 30 minutes plus 40 seconds byo-yomi

Please enter by email to David Faldon in advance to ensure that we have enough sets and clocks. If enough players have FESA grades the games will be rated.

Players will also be around to demonstrate shogi to visitors to the festival.

The nearest tube stations to Spitalfields Market are Liverpool Street (go north up Bishopsgate then east along Brushfield Street) and Aldgate East (go north up Commercial Street). It's best to check which lines are running with Transport for London.

The Shogi tournament is part of the Spitalfields Japan Matsuri Festival 2009 so there will be many interesting attractions to visit between and after the games (the Festival runs until 8 pm).
