Upcoming Events

Friday 29th May is Oak Apple Day in Great Wishford, a great family day out.

The villagers will have an early start – around 4.30am thanks to the Rough Band which will go around waking everyone with bells and drums! They will later head for Salisbury Cathedral to renew their ancient right to collect fallen timber from the Earl of Pembroke’s Grovely Wood. Members of the public are welcome to attend the service at around 10am.

At 2pm, head for the village to witness the parade of floats, then into Oak Apple Field for an afternoon of fun and frolics. There will be lots to entertain children and adults alike plus a range of stalls with goods and games.

And, of course, there’s the beer tent!
