Chess fans in the UK will have the chance to see two giants of the game at the Hay Festival in Wales later this month.

Boris Spassky (pictured) is giving a simultaneous exhibition (fully booked - I tried! Cry) and is also being interviewed by Ronan Bennett - journalist and author of the chess-themed novel 'Zugzwang' - about Soviet chess culture, the psychology of the game and his famous match against Bobby Fischer.

Garry Kasparov is in Hay talking politics - he is delivering a lecture on 'Putin's Russia'.
