What do a flock of sheep, a large marquee, live music and family fun all have in common? The Frampton Sheep Racing and Family Fun Day of course!
Now in its seventh consecutive year, Sheep Racing is back in Gloucestershire by popular demand, and takes place this Saturday (September 14) in the stunning surroundings of Frampton Court.
Featuring hilarious sheep races, live music, a BBQ, bar, tote and children's entertainment, there really is something for everyone in what promises to be a fun-filled day for whole family to enjoy.
Founded and organised by a group of dedicated villagers from Frampton-on-Severn, the event has proved so popular over the last few years that it has become a fixture on the Gloucestershire wacky event calendar.
Each race is 'donated' to a local charity or organisation who are challenged with raising as much sponsorship money as possible, all of which they get to keep.
The day brings together communities, raising several thousand pounds for local causes along the way.
On the day, families can enjoy local food and drink, music and entertainment. There's even a tote for punters to place bets on their favourite sheep, before cheering them on as they jump the sheep-sized hurdles, and hope they don't make a ewe-turn!
Use of the venue has been provided by kind permission of the Clifford family.
Entry and parking is free. Gates open from 2pm, with the first race starting at 3pm.
Pedestrian access is available via Fitcherbury and The Green only, with vehicle access signposted off the Perry Way.
