For 50 years competitors have been coming from all over the world to test their conker-bashing expertise at this fun-filled event. There are separate men’s and ladies’ competitions which you must enter in advance, here. Juniors can turn up on the day.

More than just a fun family day out, the event raises substantial amounts for charities supporting the blind and visually impaired.

Conkers are supplied ready-strung by the organisers, so no secret recipes involving vinegar or polish are allowed!
