Sunday 7 July

Peace celebrationsPeace Celebrations

11.00am - 3.00pm CRICKET GROUND, MILTON ROAD

In July 1919, to celebrate the signing of the Treaty of Versailles, which marked the formal ending of World War One, the good people of Oundle organised a sports day on the Cricket Ground. Games were many and varied and, as well as including a sack race, a tug of war, and an egg and spoon race, there was also the rather more mysterious Driving Competition in which a “lady [was to] drive a blindfolded gentleman 100 yards, avoiding obstacles”!

To mark this historic centenary, we are going to re-create these celebrations which will also include music from Yarwell & Nassington Brass Band and Oundle Fringe. Food and drink stalls will help fortify you for the events!

Check back on this page for full information about all the events and how to enter.
