World Pooh Sticks Championships
Sunday 7 June
An event every year that begins at 12:00am on day first of June, repeating indefinitely
Sadly this event is not happening in 2019, but why not play Pooh Sticks wherever you are, in celebration of the simple game created by A A Milne in the book The House at Pooh Corner?
All you need is a stick*, a stream or a river, and a bridge**. Everyone drops their stick at the same time from the up-river side of the bridge. Rush across to the other side of the bridge and see who’s stick comes out first.
* please collect your sticks responsibly, using ones that are already on the ground – don’t hurt or damage trees
** ideally you’ll play this game on a non-road bridge – and if not, have responsible adults helping children to cross roads safely
