Fancy yourself a bit of a whiz at the pool table? Well  for over 10 days this September, London’s Devonshire Square will be playing host to a charity pool tournament. Cue For Change will take place in the historic surroundings of the former 18th century warehouses with money raised going to the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust.

City workers and pool enthusiasts will be invited to play a game or two on the three pool tables between 12.30-2.30pm each day for the tournament, with more relaxed playing available outside those hours. The games will cost £1, with proceeds going to Dame Kelly’s trust, which supports athletes and young people. The prize giving will be conducted by European Junior Champion, Triple Jumper and Rio 2016 hopeful Julien Allwood.

During the tournament, Hix City will be hosting a pop-up restaurant, serving a special £5 per item menu of food and drinks. They’ll also be giving out free chicken popcorn to anyone who donates to the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust.

  • Cue For Change will run from 1 – 10 September 2015. The tournament will take place daily between 12.30-2.30pm, while the pool tables will be available to play on outside of these hours. Devonshire Square, EC2M. Nearest station: Liverpool Street, Aldgate or Aldgate East. For more information, visit the Devonshire Square website.
