The Merry Month of May

The Merry Month of May

May is the full moon of  Cotswold quirkiness as grown men and women lug wool sacks uphill, roll cheeses downhill, push each other round in prams while wearing pyjamas, dance in bowler hats with bells on their legs (accompanied by someone with a fruitcake on a sword?!?) and kick each other’s shins!

Across the Cotswolds events and exhibitions are planned to mark the centenary of the end of WWI – a time to remember.
