The Lowland Games

Muddy Gurt Fun

Held in Thorney Somerset, the Lowland Games was started in 1984 by the England family and friends. The Lowland Games is still going strong 32 years later. This year’s events will be as much fun for the audience as they are for the participants and will guarantee enjoyment for everyone.

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 year’s 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. It’s a Knock Out on and in the river, Children’s Games, Family Dog Shows and Tug of War. 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.

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.

2015 Sunday prices on the gate are:  Adults  £6  •  5 -16 years £3  •  U5’s FREE
