Welcome to Robert Dover's Cotswold Olimpick Games
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. 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 on Social Media to stay in the loop about this year's games.
