Bonkers? Yes. For Conkers!
We’re reaching out to all serious sports men, women, families, children (and their dogs) to join our annual daredevil contest of skill and danger and celebrate ‘Conktober’ with us.
Our much-loved, well-supported annual conker competition began life in 2007; this year marks the event’s 12th birthday. Join us at our beautiful ‘brewery in a barn’ on the Cowdray Estate – on Sunday 13th October.
It’s free to come along, but please give generously, as we’ll be collecting for Chestnut Tree House Hospice Care Sussex.
There will be 2 competitions to find the junior (8 to 15 years) and senior conker champions of 2019.
World championship rules apply… and all conkers are provided by the organisers (so no cheating!). This is serious (& very fun) stuff!
Players can register to play conkers online soon.
It’s just £3 to play.
There will also be (of course!) an excellent bar with many of our award winning ales available. Throughout the afternoon, the crowd will be musically entertained, plus there will delicious food to try from The Braai Bros – with their incredible South African BBQ. Also, expect fabulous stalls; gifts, tombola, face painting, cake decorating, games, mini steam engine rides, jumbo quoits, teas, cakes and more…
Live music from Worthing Silver Brass Band, plus Yukon Bass ukulele trio.
So… who will win the coveted Langham Cup or get their name on the treasured junior trophy shield?
Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice cares for around 300 children and young people. All have life-shortening conditions that mean they are unlikely to reach adulthood.
Chestnut Tree House need to raise £285 every hour to pay for all their specialist care services, both at the hospice and in families’ own homes across Sussex and South East Hampshire.
Take part in Bonkers for Conkers and help us to pay for the vital care services provided by Chestnut Tree House. Let’s see how many hours we can pay for!
