Some photographs of Gavin Wall’s simultaneous display (7 June 2022):

Boards set up and ready for action. Nice window box in our attractive venue!
Gavin introducing himself to his opponents and explaining the rules of the display.
Simon and Andrew deep in thought, with Park Road seen through the window
Gavin considering his move, unaware that Maks, sitting back at the next board, is about to trap his queen!
Paul, on the left, reconstructs his game while Mike is one of the last to finish.
The display reaches its conclusion: while the other boards are being reset, Andrew, the last to finish, is still in play.

Some photographs from the Adelaide (5 April 2022):

Our venue: The Adelaide, Park Road, Teddington. Lovely pub, friendly bar staff and excellent beer!

The function room set up ready for our match against Hammersmith.
Our top board, IM Gavin Wall, watching the other games. Nearest the camera, our player of the season Maks Gajowniczek is playing White.
As the match reaches its climax, our board 2 Mike Healey seems amused by Raghu Kamath’s game against Scottish Senior International Jim Stevenson.
Social games in progress at the other end of the room in a family-friendly environment: players of all ages are welcome!
