  Cheese Rolling
 
The Cooper's Hill Cheese Rolling and Wake is an annual event held on the Spring Bank Holiday at Cooper's Hill.

It is said that the tradition that was originally for the people of the local village, Brockworth, is two hundred years old and now attracts competitors from all over the world.

A Double Gloucester cheese is launched from the top of the hill and competitors race after it. The aim is to catch the rolling cheese however this rarely happens due to the speed in which it travels down the hill therefore the first person over the finishing line at the bottom wins the cheese.

Expect high speed drama from this alternative, fun day out; never a dull moment!

Why not sup some beer with the competitors and before the event at nearby pubs in Brockworth, ‘The Cheese Rollers’ and ‘The Cross Hands’?
