12-2pm. Alan Turing is known to many as a celebrated Manchester genius – you may know him better for building the world’s first programmable computer, code breaking at Bletchley or even his work on the fibbonnacci sequence using sunflowers.... but did you know he was also an Olympian – a runner – and a chess player. For ‘fun’ he married these two interests in a game he called Speed Chess which we will attempt to recreate en-masse. So come along for a game of chess at 12noon with your running shoes and let’s see what happens.
