The Cooper’s Hill Cheese-Rolling and Wake is an annual event held on the Spring Bank Holiday at Cooper’s Hill, near Gloucester in England. It is actually for the people who live in the local village of Brockworth, but now, people from all over the world take part of this event.

This ceremony originally took place in Whit Monday before later transferred to the Spring Bank Holiday. After a lot of proposals to the idea for the The Cooper’s Hill Cheese-Rolling and Wake, the idea finally came out. These contestants would roll a bundle of cheese down a long hill and see who’s the fastest. Sometimes people get injured so this isn’t a very safe sport for us kids.
