2010 Coopers Hill Cheese Rolling CANCELLED

Cheese Rolling in Gloucestershire

The organisers of the Cooper's Hill Cheese Rolling and Wake regret to announce that the 2010 event due to be held on Bank Holiday Monday 31 May has been cancelled and have released the following statement:

The attendance at the event has far outgrown the location where it has traditionally been held for several hundred years: last year more than 15,000 people tried to attend (according to official estimates) which is more than three times the capacity of the site.

The organisers are working with the local Authorities and Police to control numbers which will enhance:

  •  crowd safety
  •  respect for the local community
  •  emergency vehicle access
  •  traffic flow on local and trunk roads

The event will be back, in a revised form, in 2011.
