Tata Steel Chess Festival 2020


Last weekend the Tata Steel Chess Festival took place in Wijk aan Zee. Children could participate in a variety of activities including the Tata Kids of Steel® games, where a nice medal could be earned. About 2,000 visitors enjoyed the two-day family festival in Wijk aan Zee.

In the school de Vrijheit, the children could follow judo, chess and juggling workshops and children were painted beautiful. 

There was a heated tent on Julianaplein where parents and children could enjoy a chess theater or a performance by the Tata Steel Training Orchestra. It was also possible to participate in a specially-designed treasure hunt through Wijk aan Zee or to create a real chess mosaic.

In hotel Het Hoge Duin, children were able to show their creativity when making a bibberbotje at Techport Technical Crafts.

We would like to thank the Municipality of Beverwijk and all volunteers for this fanCHESStic Tata Steel Chess Festival!
