World Conker Championships
Sunday 13 October
‘Set within the picturesque county of Northamptonshire, the World Conker Championships takes place each year on the 2nd Sunday of October, in the beautiful village of Southwick near Oundle. Here we are hosted in the grounds of the local pub, the Shuckburgh Arms, and supported by the villagers.
Thousands flock to the event to watch our competitors battle and to support our cause to raise money to help the visually impaired. Since we are a ‘world’ championship, people come from across the globe to join the experience. Be sure not to miss this year’s event and get the date memorised, or in your calendar.
For the enjoyment of all attending, we provide mixed adult and junior competitions. These both operate as round based knockout games, until a winner is found and crowned on their throne. ‘
