The 2018   Monopoly   Pub Challenge Event

10th Anniversary Edition

The 2018 Event will take place on 23rd June. It will follow a similar route to the original, 10 years ago starting at The Pough, 11:00am. Sadly, some of the pubs have closed, so we will substitute those pubs with other, better and may be not previously visited ones.
The day will contain, hopefully, all the best parts of previous years, such as, the J├Ągerbomb Challenge, Head Butting Fire Extinguishers in the St. Aldate Tavern and Falling Down the Steps in the Three Goats Heads.
We will again be raising money for Katharine House Hospice, Adderbury. Last Years Cheque
