Visit Cobham Heritage Day on Sat 10 Sept 2016
Heritage Day is a family fun day which is free to enter and occupies Cobham Church Street, St Andrew's Church and Church Yard, Church Gate House Gardens and the Leg O'Mutton Field.
There are over 90 varied stalls and attractions. The stalls give the public an opportunity to meet local charities, crafts and small businesses throughout the day and to discover interesting organisations and unusual items to buy. Some of the stalls offer delicious things to eat and drink, while others have games and children's items to buy.
We also have free entertainment and attractions throughout the day. These include the popular Stilt Walkers, Maypole Dancing, Birds of Prey demonstration, Shetland Ponys, Juggling and Circus Skills, Punch & Judy, the Cobham Band and a live Jazz Band. Also, for a small charge there are the Open Gardens and classic Bus rides.
Two other major attractions on the Leg O'Mutton field are the Cobham Garden Club Autumn Show (1:30pm - 4pm) and the ever popular Classic & Vintage Car Gathering.
