Conkers championship world record attempt hampstead heath parliament hill londonNow that the weather’s back to its Autumnal norm, we’re on the lookout for scarf-appropriate activities. This conkers competition on Hampstead Heath is exactly what the weatherman ordered. The annual gathering is hoping to break the Guinness World Record for the biggest ever knock-out conker competition this Sunday (11am-4pm), with five age categories for entrants and a trophy for the winner of each. If you fear for your fingers, there are plenty of other activities to try, including welly-wanging, felt making, meet-a-sheep and morris dancing.
