Welcome to the Cotswold Olimpicks
Home of the World Shinkicking Championships
The next Games is scheduled for Friday 3rd June 2022
These historic games were first held more than 12 centuries after the last ancient Greek Olympics and almost 3 centuries before the modern Olympic Games, which began in 1896. 2022 will celebrate our 410th 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 on Social Media to stay in the loop about this year's games.
