Get ready for the 69th Scuttlebrook Wake

First published in News

THE new Scuttlebrook Queen will be crowned in Chipping Campden this weekend.

Now in its 69th year, the Scuttlebrook Wake is taking place on Saturday, traditionally the day after the Cotswold Olimpicks.

Hannah Pritchard, aged 14, of Chipping Campden School, will be crowned by reining queen Katie Pritchard, before parading with her entourage through the town from Littleworth to the square to start the festivities.

There will be a colourful display of imaginative fancy dress and decorated floats and children will dance round the maypole before the Street Fair is declared open.

The Scuttlebrook Wake was named after the Cattlebrook or Scuttlebrook which used to flow through Leasbourne until it was covered over in 1831.
