In line with the latest Government advice in relation to the Coronavirus outbreak, the Woolsack Committee have regrettably cancelled the 2021 Tetbury Woolsack Races.

All competitors or stallholders who have paid their entry/stand fees for 2020 via BACS shall have their funds held until 2022, when the event shall return bigger and better than ever. Should you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us

We wish all our valued visitors and competitors all the very best and we look forward to hosting the 2022 Races on 'The Hill'.

Previous Race Results:


Last year's celebrity guest was Eddie the Eagle Edwards! We would like to thank him for opening the Races and being such a star. In 2018 the co-host of BBC's CountryFile, and former Tetburian  Ellie Harrison started the Races for us and brought some family members to compete.


If you are a registered charity or local project and would like to be considered as one of next year's beneficiaries then please contact us on social media. Closing date for applications is the 30th of November the previous year.


We are a very small committee.
If you would like to join us, or help with preparations or on the day please contact us.
Thanks for your support.
