Welcome to Robert Dover's Cotswold Olimpick Games
Chronologically, these ancient games sit almost exactly between the end of the ancient original Greek Olympics and the modern Olympic Games begun in 1896. 2020 will celebrate our 408th anniversary and the games are still held in the arena that bears the founder's name - Dover's Hill. It now also marks the end of festival season in Chipping Campden, following hot on the heels of the International Music Festival and the Literary Festival. If you're heading here on holiday, you might as well make a weekend of it and stay for Scuttlebrook Wake on the Saturday too. Follow us to stay in the loop about next year's games.
