Robert Dover's Cotswold Olimpick Games

Event ended

Editor's Choice

Fans of medieval traditions won’t want to miss the eagerly-awaited return of Robert Dover’s Cotswold Olimpick Games, 407 years after it first began.

Hordes of spectators will flock to the annual Cotswold Olimpick Games once again, where they can expect weird and wonderful sporting trials such as the famous shin-kicking competition.

Dating back to the early 1600s, the unmissable event will take place in the natural amphitheatre of Chipping Campden’s Dover’s Hill on Friday 31 May 2019.

For competitive kids, there’s the half mile Junior Circuit, whilst adults will get drenched in the Championship of the Hill race, and there’s a chance to test your strength in the Tug O’War competition.

As ever, the action-packed event will also feature fireworks, a torchlit procession, bands marching and cannons firing.
