Please be aware that this competition only has 3x3x3 Fewest Moves. This is run similarly to an exam and so is not very spectator friendly. If you do wish to spectate, please note that we allow only 2 guests per competitor for this competition, as the venue has limited space, and no judges are required. There is a cafe downstairs however, so there is a spot for parents to relax while their child participates.
