Find a spot on Windrush banks and get ready to be entertained, when the Bourton-on-the-Water Football in the River 2017 kicks off in the Cotswolds on August bank holiday Monday.

August bank holiday will see the usually tranquil River Windrush taken over by two teams of lively football players, battling it out for victory in the annual Bourton-on-the-Water Football in the River match.

Transforming the tranquil grassy banks of the river, hundreds of spectators are expected to congregate once again on bank holiday Monday 28 August 2017.

Braving the chilly waters will be two six-a-side teams who promise the crowds plenty of entertainment and an opportunity to shout loud, and with splashing all part of the fun, frontline spectators are expected to get wet!

Perfect for some harmless entertainment and sporting action, this Gloucestershire event is one not to be missed.
