The Stilton Cheese Rolling Festival is one of the year's highlights in the small Cambridgeshire town of Stilton. Participants compete in rolling large rounded blocks of wood along the high street for a prize of cheese and bottles of port.
Many of the teams compete in fancy dress and although the sport has become more well-behaved in recent years, you will still see a fair amount of tumbles and falls. It's a knockout competition with quarters, semis and a grand final, so you're in for a full day's entertainment.
