The Amberley Inn This Summer

Malcolm Maclean - Monday, May 18, 2015

As the home of Cheese Racing and Aunt Sally; the Cotswolds are well known for our entertaining - and sometimes odd sporting past times. May promises to be no different with a wide range of spectator events on offer.

The Tetbury Sack race 25th May 2pm onwards

The Tetbury Sack Race is not quite as you may remember it from your school days. In this race competitors test their speed and strength by carrying a sack of wool up and down a hill that reaches a gradient of 1 in 4. Around this the town celebrates with a street fair that aims to please many with street entertainers, local stalls and amusement rides. The many catering establishments in the town also join in to provide a very local fare for visitors.

Gloucestershire Cheese rolling completion 25th May 12pm onwards

The Cooper's Hill Cheese-Rolling and Wake is an annual event held on the Spring Bank Holiday at Cooper's Hill, near Gloucester in England. It is traditionally by and for the people who live in the local village of Brockworth, but now people from all over the world take part. The Guardian called it a "world-famous event", and indeed, in 2013, a 27-year-old American and a 39-year-old Japanese each won one of the four races.

Olimpick Games Chipping Campden 29th May

Each year, on the traditional date of Friday after Spring Bank Holiday (the date for the Games this year is Friday 29th May 2015 on Dover's Hill starting at 7.30pm), the hill echoes with the shouts and cheers of competitors and spectators as Robert Dover's Cotswold 'Olimpick' Games (not Olympic Games) are celebrated.
