Each August Bank Holiday Monday, a unique football game takes place in the River Windrush at Bourton on the Water.  Play is between teams from local side Bourton Rovers and it’s not just the players who get wet! The game takes about half-an-hour and has been played annually for over a century, though match times have varied a little between 10-11 am and 2pm and 4 pm over the years. There is plenty more entertainment throughout the day starting with the opening of the fete, and Bourton is full of things to see, shops and eateries.

Date: 28th August 2023
Location: Bourton on the Water, Gloucestershire - in the River Windrush, town centre.
Cost : Free to spectate.
