Old School Sports Day

Sun 30 Aug 2020



Free with grounds admission


Are you the next Usain Bolt? Or Greg Rutherford?

Bring out that fun competitive side at our Old School Sports day. Be instantly transported to those hot summer days at school, making daisy chains on the school field whilst you wait for the egg and spoon race.

We have a great selection of old school classics such as the giant sack race and three-legged race and some new twists including space hoppers. All the fun is led by our ‘Headmaster’ – but don’t get caught misbehaving or you could face some detention or extra work.

3-legged race
