John Hampden Week

campIn June 1997 the Society co-operated with the John Hampden Primary School in Thame and Col. John Hampden’s Regiment to organise John Hampden Week. This was a celebration of the Patriot’s life, with a Living History display (left), lectures, exhibitions, and a mock battle.

The high spot was the march through the streets of Thame by Hampden’s Greencoats (below), with drums beating and colours flying. This event was repeated in 2000.
