The event will take place on 1st – 2nd November at The O2 Academy Leicester, where current UK Champion Thom Barlow will be defending his cubing title. The 2013 Rubik’s Cube Champion completed the iconic 3×3 cube in a mind blowing 10.64 seconds average. Thom has a battle on his hands this year, as the current UK record holder and new European Champion, 16 year old Alexander Lau, will be competing, as will previous champion Breandan Vallance.

The Rubik’s UK Open event consists of many events including 2×2 Rubik’s Cube, 4×4 Rubik’s Cube, 5×5 Rubik’s Cube, Rubik’s Magic, 3x3x3 Rubik’s Cube one handed and 3×3 Rubik’s Cube blindfolded. There is also a new event this year, which involves cubers solving the Rubik’s Cube with their feet.
