Chichester’s Old Home Day is August 17 this year. The celebration
really begins on Friday, August 16, when exhibitors can set up their
spaces, the beans go into the ground to bake all night, and the
Scavenger Hunt takes place. The Scavenger Hunt is an adventure for
teams of family or friends to explore the town looking for items and

top three teams will win prizes, but the real fun is in the
participation. If you haven’t done the Scavenger Hunt before, why
not make this your year?
