Cranham Feast and Deer Roast is one of Gloucestershires oldest customs but its origins are obscure. The popular belief is that is started in medieval times when it was common practice for the lord of the manor to offer a feast of venison with ample refreshment for their tenants.
In modern times the Cranham Feast and Deer Roast has been held on the Saturday before the second Monday in August. The Feast lasts all weekend with a variety of activities taking place and is followed a week or two later with a Feast Dinner. Details can be found here.
