Brand new for 2017 - the Cirencester March Hare Festival is running a Cotswold Hare Trail, sending its famous hares further afield! This gives you a fantastic opportunity to explore the far corners of the Cotswolds in your search for the hares, visiting towns and villages you may never have visited before. Go off the beaten track and follow the hares on foot, by bike and public transport with special maps outlining a variety of short and long trails around the region.

This year the hares will be decorated by our amazing artists to celebrate the outstanding culture and heritage of the Cotswolds . From Chipping Camden in the North Cotswolds, to Chipping Sodbury in the South, via Chipping Norton in the East and Stroud in the West see if you can spot them. Find all the five foot hares in a prize winning event! This is some challenge!!

As if that wasn't enough many towns will also feature their own town trails and run hare themed events throughout the Festival. Maybe you will even bid to buy a hare at the October auction! Find out more by following the regular information on Trails and events on our website www.cirencestermarchharefestival.org.uk and our social media sites. Also check out individual town websites. Watch out for the Cotswold Trail app unveiling in the Spring.

Moreton in Marsh Agricultural and Horse Show

Moreton Show was first held in 1949, on the same site it has occupied ever since - part of the Batsford Estate - although it has been much extended over the years. Its underlying purpose is to improve the standard of farming and farm crafts locally. This zeal for improvement was at the core of the three societies which merged to form the present Moreton-in-Marsh Show Society - the Cotswold Agricultural Society, The Moreton Shire Horse Society and the Moreton-in-Marsh and District Agricultural Society. The date of the first ever show was fixed for Saturday September 3rd and the show has been held in early September ever since.

The Blenheim International Horse Trials

Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials will take place a week later than usual in 2017 (13th - 17th September), and will be held over five days instead of four.

Event Director Mandy Hervieu explains: “The date change is due to the fact that for many years three of the bigger international horse trials (Blair Castle, Burghley and Blenheim Palace) have been on consecutive weekends, which puts pressure on many of the events’ stakeholders, in addition to there being a very busy event programme at Blenheim Palace itself in the weeks before.
