Play conkers on Hampstead Heath

As part of the annual Heath Heritage Festival, this afternoon sees the annual Hampstead Heath Conker competition, with knock out rounds for five groups – the under fives, 5-8 years, 8-12 years, 13-16 years and adults. The winner of each final will receive a trophy.

Alongside this, there will be stalls from the National Trust, RSPB and volunteer group Heath Hands, and a chance to do some felt-making, some medieval archery, battle in a tug-of-war and even do some welly wanging. Your author will sadly have to miss it as he is recovering from an intense conker competition last night.

It all takes place in the vicinity of the Parliament Hill Bandstand today from 11am until 4pm. The conker competition is at 3pm, the tug of war at 1.30pm and the welly wanging from 11am until 1pm.
