Tunbridge Wells Soapbox Race - Saturday 26th June 2021

Saturday 27th June 2020 - Update from the Tunbridge Wells Soapbox Race Team


The newly named Tunbridge Wells Soapbox Race will take place one year from now on Saturday 26th June 2021 at Dunorlan Park, Tunbridge Wells.

Today’s the day! Yes, today we would have been watching a colourful bunch of brilliantly built soapbox karts hurtle down the Dunorlan hill, compete for the 2020 Crazy Jeans Soapbox Race title and support our two nominated causes – Hospice in the Weald and Nourish Community Foodbank.

But, with events on hold worldwide and the race postponed, it is the perfect day to announce the date for next year and also our decision to rename the race in keeping with our aim to put on a fantastic, fund-raising community event for Tunbridge Wells town.

We will soon be sharing a series of podcasts featuring your favourite soapbox race personalities, starting with Rosemary Shrager – chatting about our plans for next year’s race and how everyone has been keeping busy in lockdown, amongst other things, so watch this space!

Huge thanks again for the support of our race partners and charities and to you all too, throughout these strange times!
