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, an egg and spoon race, there was also the rather more mysterious Driving Competition in which a “lady [was to] drive a blindfolded gentleman 100yards, 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 our website for full information about all the events and how to enter.
We are asking everyone who has in their possession photographs or any recorded material from the original 1919 Peace Games to come forward and contact us on 01832274919, email [email protected] or come in person to 4 New Street, PE8 4AE.
