A roasted whole ox, prepared overnight by volunteers from The Houghton Feast Trust, will be served up in sandwiches in the grounds of The Old Rectory, near The Broadway, where the first oxen were roasted by Rector Bernard Gilpin to feed Houghton’s poor in the 16th century. The ceremonial first slice of beef will be carved by the Right worshipful, the Mayor of Sunderland, Dorothy Trueman, at 1 o’clock on Saturday October 7th 2023 where she becomes the 50th Mayor to carry out the honour.
All proceeds from the sale of the tasty sandwiches will be used towards next year’s event.
