Organisers of the world-famous Cooper’s Hill Cheese Rolling and Wake have announced that the annual event, scheduled to take place on Monday 31 May 2010, has been cancelled.
Attendance at the event is said to have far outgrown the location where it has traditionally been held for several hundred years – with 15,000 people descending on the area in a bid to catch the action in 2009. This is three times the capacity of the rural site near Brockworth in Gloucester, organisers say.
While local and international fans will no doubt be disappointed to hear the news, the event’s organising committee are working with local authorities and police to control numbers and improve crowd safety, emergency vehicle access and traffic flow for next year’s event.
Due to make a return in 2011, in a revised form, the next Cooper’s Hill Cheese and Wake may be the most highly-anticipated yet.
