Your invitation to join us in celebrating the first Southchurch Day, in Southchurch Hall Gardens on 15th June between 12 – 4pm. This is part of our Sudcerca series of events celebrating the 1200 anniversary of the area.

There are many stalls, re-enactments, music, dance, food, drink and much more. We are also grateful to our partners Southend Museums who will open Southchurch Hall on the day.

We are delighted that the current High Sherriff of Essex will be paying a visit as the date is relevant to a predecessor. Southchurch Day is actually the 12th June, but we’re celebrating it on the nearest Saturday, 15th June. 12thJune 1267  is the day that Richard de Southchurch resigned from his role as High Sherriff of Essex & Hertfordshire. A much more interesting fact is that Richard stole roosters, inserted them with incendiary devices and catapulted them towards the walls of London in the 2nd Barons War. Which is the reason a rooster appears in the Southchurch Day logo – The Roosters Revenge.

This event is in partnership with our friends SHIP – Southchurch Hall Inspirational Parkers and Southend Museums.
