See many more fun photos below!



Started in 1984 by the England family and their friends, the Lowland Games is still going strong 26 years later.


This year's events will be as much fun for the audience as for the participants and will guarantee enjoyment for everyone. Not only is this a fun event, but very importantly, the Lowland Games is supported by both local residents and businesses and raises money for charities and many local good causes.


People flock to the Lowland Games for all the fun and frolics to be had in one fabulous day. Held on the 31st July, this years fun includes the highlight of the day, the River Raft Race with competitors in the most hilarious fancy dress. How often will you get the chance to see the Pink Ladies competing against Batman and local firemen to be the first down the river? We also have the infamous Mud Wrestling and Wife Carrying arena. Its a Knock Out on and in the river, Childrens Games, Family Dog Shows, Tug of War and NEW to this year The funny Farmyard Derby. There is entertainment with the Fabulous Ferret Racing, teas and homemade refreshment and the best beer tent in the area, serving local ales and Somerset cider from locally grown apples. PLUS The Mangledwurzels will be playing - Hurrah!


There will be giggletastic fun for all, whether you choose to take part in the mud encrusted games or you would just like to watch the fun from the river bank whilst enjoying a slice of homemade cake and a cuppa.


Keep an eye on our website www.thelowlandgames.co.ukfor updates on the what, where and when of the Lowland Games and we look forward to seeing you there!! Its a laugh from beginning to end and everyone who organises the event looks forward to seeing you there enjoying a little bit of country fun!!
