Cheese Rolling Festival May Bank Holiday
- Brockworth, UK
This 200 year old festival, created in the village of Brockworth, is an annual event in which the competitors (of all ages) chase a block of Double Gloucester cheese down a very steep hill (and it is believed that the cheese can reach speeds of up to 70mph) with the winner taking the cheese home. This traditional and exciting festival has, unfortunately, (following Health and safey advice) been abandoned by official management in recent years, which shows the true value of the event to the people of Brockworth as they continue to hold it every year.
