Within a small room in Wellingborough on the 22nd May, dragons clashed with mages, intrepid explorers negotiated trades for the good of their young society, and iconic superheroes battled their equally iconic foes.
This was just another day in the life of Talent Match Northamptonshire!
Through the many varied board games and card games played throughout the day, young people had the chance to learn new skills, make new friends, and they had a great time doing it!
The event was the brainchild of Shaun Harris, a young person from Talent Match, who went on to design the publicity materials and organise catering for the event.
Shaun came up with the idea following a similar event focussed on video games earlier this year, and felt that many of his friends would be keen to attend.
The day was a great success, with not only current Talent Match beneficiaries attending, but also people who wanted to sign-up to the project!
We are looking at replicating the event at some point in the future, with a hope that even more people attend.
