13.10.2013United Kingdom: World Conker Championships *** ARCHIVE

Camera Crew Germany

The picturesque Northamptonshire village of Ashton hosts the World Conker Championships on the second Sunday in October every year. Thousands flock to Ashton to watch this great spectacle as modern day gladiators’ fight for glory armed only with a nut and 12” of string.

Organised by Ashton Conker Club, the competition first took place in 1965. Teams from all over the world meet for the competition. The competitors play on eight white podiums on the village green until the winner emerges and is lead to the Conker Throne and crowned with conkers.

We're going to film this event. Please let us know if you're interested in the footage.
