A Friendly Chess Club in the Heart of Lancaster

NOTICE: Due to the on-going government recommendation, the club is still closed with no fixed opening date. This page will be updated as soon as we know more and hope for return before the season would traditionally finish at the end of April.

Based in the heart of Lancaster, UK, our historic chess club, which dates back to 1895, welcomes players of all ages and abilities to come and enjoy a game of chess. Be it for short, long, casual or competitive games there's something for everyone.

We meet weekly, and over the course of the year, highlights range from the round robin club chess championship (90 minutes), to the rapid play championship, as well as occasional blitz chess tournaments. And for players who prefer to play casual games, club nights always offer the opportunity to have a game.

If this sounds good, please see the information for club nights below - please do get in touch via e-mail and we look forward to welcoming you soon!


The club meets at the Reform Club, on the top floor. Lancaster, LA1 1NQ, UK. Contact: [email protected]


The Club meets Tuesdays (7 pm onwards) from late September until the end of April.


Fun and casual games (with the exception of match nights), all ages are welcome.
