Cheese Rolling is one of the most popular events in the English-speaking world. In Stilton, which is located in the heart of England, Cheese Rolling has become an annual May Day event. Hundreds of villagers and visitors enjoy traditional Bank Holiday entertainment and watch the teams battling for the Stilton Cheese Rolling trophies.

It would be nice to be able to say that the event is “as old as the village”, but no one really knows how far back the tradition of rolling cheese goes. Nowadays, the starting point is always outside “The Angel Spice” and the finish line is drawn at the crossroads between the bottom of Fen Street and Church Street. The contestants compete in teams of four, either all men, all women, or mixed juniors. Each team member has to roll the cheese at least once during the fight. It is a knockout competition with quarters, semis, and a grand final.
