Tetbury is in an area of outstanding natural beauty and the second largest town in the Cotswolds. It is the home of HRH Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, and the Duchess of Cornwall and, was an important market for Cotswold wool and yarn during the Middle Ages. Tetbury has a lot to offer visitors, with good food, fashionable shopping, the annual Woolsack Races and the crazy soapbox derby Tetbury Wacky Races.
Tetbury Lions Club organised the first Wacky Races in 2012 as part of Queen Elizabeth II’s Jubilee Celebrations and has since been an annual event. Despite the 2020 cancellation, due to the Covid pandemic, The team have been working to make sure Tetbury Wacky Races 2022 will be the biggest and most exciting yet. Tetbury Lions are proud to present a FREE event for all the family, and thank everyone who give their time and talent to make it a success.
The Wacky Races committee decided that the fourth running of the event should be committed to celluloid (well sort of). So local videographer and composer Steve Hilliker was commissioned to film the event in 4K. Steve filmed, edited and composed the music track for this film which has had 1000 views on Youtube
