The Gillygate Conker Championship
Sun 16 October 2016, 15:00 – 18:00 BST
The ultimate family event returns for its third year!
Parents pass on the tradition of conkers (and conker folklore) to your children and relive your youth, but this time, you can play conkers in a pub! A glorious game of conkers and a pint of real ale, it’s what Sundays were invented for.
Junior Championship (the ‘Conkertition’ as it is favourable known locally) starts promptly at 2pm and Senior Championship take place at 3pm ensuring it’s a shared family experience. Every match will have a referee and standard conker rules will apply. All conkers will be supplied by the administrators and the Championship’s referee decision is final with the winner of the Senior Championship automatically qualifying for the Conker World Championship.
Music, games and roasted chestnuts should be available… will we see the return of classic games as ‘Conker in a Tea Pot’ Conker in a Pint Pot’ or even the renowned ‘Conker and Spoon’ race!
This October The Gillygate is going Pink in association with Breast Cancer Now and we are delighted to say that our Conker Championship is one of several pink events through October that all money raised go directly to Breast Cancer Now www.breastcancernow.org.
