Tetbury Lions Club organise the Wacky Races as a FREE family event, and we believe it provides a great day out for all ages. Any profit we make this year is going to dementia charities and Aid for Ukraine. If you are visiting us by car we ask that you only park in the official Lions car parks and help us with our fundraising. We thank St. Mary's School and The Great Tythe Barn for donating their land free of charge.
