Saturday 2nd March 2019 - Music at Stow Concert at
St. Edwards Church, Stow-on-the-Wold

Georgie Fame
 Whether you remember the sixties, or arrived on the planet much more recently, it is very likely that you have been influenced by the contribution that Georgie Fame has made to jazz, pop and contemporary music. Playing festivals, appearing on the BBC with Jaimie Callum, and featured on Diana Krall‘s cover of his early hit “Yeh Yeh” on Krall’s Wallflower album released in 2015, he still retains his unique unmistakable voice.
So far there have been more than twenty albums and fourteen hit singles, including the Number 1’s: Yeh Yeh, Get Away and The Ballad of Bonnie and Clyde.  Add to this a long list of collaborations with some of music’s most famous names, including Muddy Waters, Gene Vincent, Bill Wyman, Eric Clapton, Van Morrison and Diana Krall, amongst many others, and in Georgie Fame you have bona fide music legend!

Music at Stow is very excited to be presenting this extraordinary performer for one night only, in the famous 12th century St Edward’s Church, just off the main square in Stow-on-the-Wold.
Saturday 2nd March 2019
St Edwards Church, 2 Crossways House, The Square, Stow-on-the-Wold. GL54 1AB

About

On 17 May in 1649, on the orders of Cromwell, three Levellers's leaders were executed outside Burford Church. Each year we gather there for a day of celebration and commemoration of the ideas of the English Levellers' - democracy, equality and religious freedom.

Its a day of political debate, radical history, song and music. With high profile speakers, historians, entertainers and family fun, it is a great day out in the heart of the Cotswolds.

The day starts with a commemoration by the church and then accompanied by music and song we march up the hill to the recreation ground for a programme of politics, debate, childrens activities, refreshments and music.

With speeches, debate, bands, stalls, music, a procession through Burford, the ceremony in the churchyard and much more!

Monday 27th May 2019 - Tetbury Woolsack Races starting at 10am

It is thought that the races originated in the 17th Century by young drovers showing off to local women by running up the hill carrying a woolsack. An official race day has been going for over 30 years now with world records entered in the ‘Guinness book of Records’.
The course is 280 yards long up and down a hill which has a 1 in 4 gradient, so the men's record of 3.5 minutes is no mean feat!
The Woolsack Races form the central attraction of a fund-raising day which includes an all-day street market, a charity auction, a village fete, street entertainers, marching bands and more entertainment for all the family.

Monday 27 May 2019 - Cheese Rolling at Cooper's Hill

Competitors hurl themselves down the steep banks of Cooper's Hill, chasing the giant Cheese! Cooper's Hill, Near Brockworth. 12.00 midday (A46 Stroud-Brockworh Rd). Web: www.cheese-rolling.co.uk

Upwards of 40 contests annually attempt to chase a rolling cheese wheel down the hill for what may be the strangest competition in the history of mankind. However, the rich tradition dates back several hundred years validating the race as a world-famous event. The legacy lives on without a conclusive origin, yet many attest that it spawned during the early 1800s to celebrate the turn of winter and a fresh batch of crops.

Cirencester Park was laid out in the 1700s and a monument erected in 1741 to the memory of Queen Anne by the first Earl of Bathurst, whom she had created Baron Bathurst in 1712, with the help of the poet Alexander Pope.
