Tetbury Woolsack Races

Monday 29 May 2017 - Bank Holiday

Tetbury holds a rather unusual event on the May Bank Holiday.

Locals arrange themselves into teams of 4 and them into pairs to relay a 60lb woolsack (35lb for the ladies) up and down Gumstool Hill between The Crown and The Royal Oak pubs. The course is 280 yards long up and down a 1 in 4 hill, so if you want to challenge the mens record of 3.5 minutes off you go!

The races are the main attraction of a fun filled fund rasing day including:

  • All day street market
  • Charity auction
  • Village fete
  • Street entertainers
  • Family entertainment
