Annual Battle Marbles Match & Easter Bonnet Parade


Over 100 people in fancy dress compete to win Battle’s traditional marbles competition which is believed to have originated in the early 1900s.  The clubs and Battle pubs that enter compete fiercely to win the marbles and fancy dress trophies.  Local children enjoy taking part in the traditional Easter Bonnet Parade.  Entry in advance for both events. 

Visitors enjoy the spectacle and can try their hand at marbles on the all-comers board, and the children can join in the popular marbles scramble!
