for Cotswold Olimpicks as your favourite British event.

Each year, on the traditional date of Friday after Spring Bank Holiday Dover's Hill echoes with the shouts and cheers of competitors and spectators as Robert Dover’s Cotswold ‘Olimpick’ Games are celebrated. Bands march, cannon fire, rustic activities including the world championship Shin Kicking take place, and the evening is brought to a close with fireworks and a torchlight procession into Campden followed by dancing in the square.
