Cotswold Olimpicks: Your thoughts
Have you ever seen, or taken part in, the Cotswold Olimpicks? Help us educate others by sharing your experience here.
Once a year, Dover's Hill near Chipping Campden reverberates to the sound and activity of the Cotswold Olimpicks.
Dating back about four hundred years the games now take place on the Friday after Spring Bank Holiday.
Those early 'Olimpick' sports included singlestick, wrestling, jumping in sacks, dancing and even shin-kicking, which has now grown into one of the most talked about unusual sporting traditions in the country.
Have you seen it or even taken part yourself? Tell us below.
