The Cooper’s Hill Cheese-Rolling and Wake is an annual event held on the Spring Bank Holiday at Cooper’s Hill, near Gloucester in England. It was traditionally partaken by and for the people who live in the local village of Brockworth, Gloucestershire, but now people from all over the world take part.
Every year there are injuries but people keep returning each year to participate. In this compilation, we see some highlights (lowlights?) from this year’s run set to the soothing sounds of Franz Schubert’s ‘Ave Maria‘, also known as Ellen’s Third Song. It was composed in 1825 as part of Schubert’s Opus 52.
