Obviously this is an organised event with the chance to win trophies but I was thinking this is something that anyone could do in any area of the country. If you arrange a get together in your garden it gives the adults achance to throw a party of their own??? Might even be the better option.
Nice idea - if only I hadn't turned into such a recluse I'd be up for organising something like this up here.

Used to live a short cycle ride from HH in my London days. I don't remember this event, but I do remember picnics and good music up at Kenwood House on summer evenings ... Ahhhhh, < sigh > the good old days...
If its an informal thing that you do yourself the only thing that limits it is the availability of conkers. Get the kids collecting on the way home. Put the word out with a few other parents that you are holding a conker party.
Get together a few drinks and snacks and PARTY. Lots of bruised wrists the following day though :p
