Stilton Cheese Rolling Championship

May 2nd - May 2nd

Suggested by emilou19 on Mar 9th

Although it may be based on an earlier tradition, the modern competition of cheese rolling dates from the middle of the 20th century. The village had recently been bypassed and landlords had seen a resulting drop in their passing trade. One entrepreneurial landlord started rolling a wooden stilton outside his pub and eventually other villagers joined him - or so the story goes.
