Stretch and Challenge Summer Competition

This summer residents of the South East will come  to Rochester to help celebrate the birthday of one of our most important and oldest historical artefacts: the Magna Carta. This document, which shaped the political landscape of Britain, turns 800 this year! Did you know that Rochester Castle played a role in the signing of the Magna Carta? They will be celebrating this all summer with their Summer of Siege.
