Events at The Old Rectory

Houghton Feast

Houghton Feast is a timeless fixture in the calendar each year and the grounds around the Old Rectory should be part of the fun once again!
The Feast is a yearly festival which has been taking place annually for over 800 years. The event was originally conceived as a dedication festival to the parish church of St Michael & All Angels, lasting ten days and includes everything from a fair ground to a ceremonial Ox roast.

The Big Lunch

Our annual picnic in the park for all the family is back!
The Big Lunch is the UK’s annual get-together for neighbours and communities, with millions of people coming together for a few hours of food, friendship, and fun. It connects people and encourages friendlier, safer communities

Heritage open days

Come and have a look around our extraordinary 500-year-old building. Discover The Old Rectory's prominence in local history with displays by our History and Research Group and The Broken Mask Theatre Company. There will be children's activities, historic trails in our beautiful Rectory Park and the chance to have a self guided tour of our wood panelled hidden treasure, the old Council Chamber.
