For those peeps in the west country, who have finished exams/aren't students/have much spare time (I'm looking at you here bug!).... there's a crazy sounding gathering on a hill near Brockworth in the Gloucestershire Cotswolds: ubbloco

basically involves people hurling themselves down steep hills chasing after a 7-8lb. Double Gloucester cheese!! Whoever gets to the foot of the hill first wins the cheese!! I know this is appealing to you T&B biggrin



We could go and take some toys to play with! weavesmiley

Posted:Hey there

i live 5 minutes from where they roll the cheeses. Last year it was cancelled because it was raining and there was fear that the cheese would get out of control!

Very funny to watch and loads of people go although I dont think that there would be an oppotunity to spin, it is not that kind of festival!


Poi... it's an obsession.
