The Soapbox Derby

Soapbox Derby Poster

The Cubs are bringing back the Soapbox Derby to the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Summer Fair! The soapbox Derby is a fun, whacky, family friendly event, where amateur drivers race homemade soapbox vehicles. Each hand-made machine is fuelled by nothing but sheer courage, the force of gravity and perhaps a little pushing and pulling! The race course will form the centre of the Fair and will take place between 2.45pm – 4.30pm

This year’s theme is NAUTICAL!

How do I enter?
Please email your name, cart name and contact details to Penny Brash at penster35@hotmail.com by Friday 27th May.
