Each year, on the traditional date, - the date this year will be Friday 29th May, Friday after Spring Bank Holiday, the hill echoes with the shouts and cheers of competitors and spectators as Robert Dover's Cotswold®Olimpick Games (not Olympic Games) are celebrated. Bands march, cannon fire, rustic activities and wrestling take place, and the evening is brought to a close with fireworks and a torchlight procession into Campden followed by dancing in the square.
