Eastcombe Gnome Hunt

Event ended

Editor's Choice

Go hunting for gnomes in the village of Eastcombe, enjoy fun and games with the family and win your very own garden gnome, this summer.

Adding to the county’s already jam-packed wacky events calendar, the village of Eastcombe is preparing to be invaded by scores of garden gnomes for families to discover, during its annual Gnome Hunt.

Organised by Eastcombe School Association to raise funds for the local primary school, the unique event is hoping to attract hundreds of visitors on Saturday 30 June and Sunday 1 July 2018.

Families will have the opportunity to explore this hilltop village sprinkled with honey-coloured Cotswold stone properties, winding lanes and glorious gardens, as they follow the trail, collect clues and solve the puzzle to be in with a chance of winning a rosy-cheeked, bearded gnome of their own.

What’s more, there will also be a shorter, pushchair-friendly route through the village, with the chance to grab an ice-cream along the way to cool down the weary gnome hunters.

Setting off from Eastcombe Primary School, where there will be stalls and games galore for little ones to enjoy, the trail will finish with a quintessentially British tradition of cream tea at the Village Hall.
