Bricks are tossed, rolling pins hurled and rubber chickens chucked at the annual Stroud Brick and Rolling Pin Throwing competition.

Providing the ultimate family day out, the Stroud Showground will be bursting with the market and local food stalls, activities, and entertainment for the entire family – just be careful to duck out of the way of the propelling pins, pullets, and blocks!

Our littlest visitors can enjoy face painting and a variety of fun games and ever-popular tug-o-war returns each year along with the fast and furious post splitting and wood chop and a display of the vintage vehicle.

Anyone with an eye on becoming the best on the planet would need to beat the 2023 world record tosses: over 27 metres with a brick and over 28 metres with a rolling pin.

About the Brick & Rolling Pin Competition:

In 1960 the brick-making towns of Stroud in the UK and the USA, held the first bricking-throwing contest, with Australia and Canada joining the tradition in 1961. In 1962, Australia suggested including a women’s rolling pin contest.

And recently, the fun-filled addition of children hurling a rubber chook embodies the events sense of family spirit and lightheartedness, which keeps attracting participants and spectators year after year.
