Amberley Cow Hunt

Event ended

Editor's Choice

Spot the ‘amoosingly’ named cows hidden around the village of Amberley, tuck into cakes at the vintage tea tent, and have fun with the family at the seventh annual Cow Hunt fundraiser.

The quaint village of Amberley will be the setting for a rather unique and ‘amoosing’ event, when the seventh annual Cow Hunt returns this spring.

Over the weekend of Saturday 30 April and and Sunday 1 May 2016, families from far and wide will be embarking on a trail through the village and common, to discover more than 30 hidden, novelty wooden cows.

Held in celebration of the forthcoming arrival of the real cows at the common, previous years have seen names such as ‘Desperate Cowswife’, ‘Moolin Rouge’, ‘Finding Nemoo’ and ‘Diamond Moobiliee’ on their novelty counterparts, all of whom will be delightfully dressed to impress.

The popular family event, organised by Amberley Parochial School to raise funds for the Send a Cow charity in Africa, will offer plenty to keep the little ones entertained, including face painting and a funny photo booth, whilst adults can rack their brains in the Cow Hunt quiz and rest and refresh in the vintage tea tent, brimming with a sumptuous array of homemade cakes.

Herd together the family and friends for an afternoon of great British eccentricity in the glorious Gloucestershire countryside.
