'What's On'


Grafton Regis - 1,000 Years in 100 Minutes!
The amazing history of Grafton Regis comes to life as you walk through the village.

Our 2020 historical walks will take place on Saturday May 16th, Saturday June 20th and Saturday September 12th.

We start at 2.30pm in the colourfully decorated Grafton Regis Village Hall and meet some of the famous people from medieval times who have links with the village, including the White Queen, Elizabeth Woodville, and Richard III, all in authentic costume.  We then take a leisurely walk through the village to the beautiful Church of St Mary the Virgin, meeting Henry VIII, Cardinal Wolsey, Elizabeth I and other historical figures from the Tudor period en route.  More events from village history, including the sacking of Grafton House during the Civil War, the creation of the Dukedom of Grafton, and the discovery of the Grafton Portrait of Shakespeare, are recounted in the Church.  We also meet characters from more recent times back at the Village Hall.

Finally, tea and cakes are served in the Village Hall. The cost is £9.50 for adults, £1.00 for under 16s and free for under 5s.

All profits will be divided between the funds for the maintenance of the Village Hall and of the Church.

Booking is essential.  Please phone Kathy on 07910 092 132 or email keith.harry@btinternet.com
