The Gloucestershire Cheese Rolling is expected to return on Sunday 5 June 2022, although this has not been confirmed on the official Facebook page.
Gloucestershire’s Cooper Hill has been host to the traditional cheese rolling event since the 1800s. Due to health and safety concerns the event was officially cancelled in 2010. Since then however, triumphant spectators and loyal competitors have continued to descend on Cooper’s Hill, determined to keep this world-famous sporting tradition alive.
Cooper’s Hill , the setting for this historical event which makes headlines around the world, is so steep that very few contestants have ever got to the bottom on their feet. Instead spectators will see them going head-over-heels down the hill in a desperate attempt to catch the prize - an 8lb Double Gloucester. The Cheese Rolling winner is the first person to cross the line at the bottom of Cooper's Hill.
Plese note - If you plan to visit, parking is normally a problem and roads are often closed by police. So get there with plenty of time to spare.
