ABOUT THE TW SOAPBOX RACE

We are pleased to announce the Tunbridge Wells Soapbox Stars Race is returning to Tunbridge Wells in 2023 even bigger, better and more exhilarating than before!

 

The one of its kind soapbox kart race, raises serious cash for local charities while bringing businesses and community groups together for a hilarious family fun day out in the heart of the town. The event has raised more than £84,000 for charities to date!

 

Hosted at Dunorlan Park on Saturday June 24th 2023, Tunbridge Wells Soapbox Stars Race will be supporting three amazing charities in 2023; Hospice in the Weald, Nourish Community Foodbank in Tunbridge Wells and Pickering Cancer Drop-In Centre.

Handmade soapbox karts, each sponsored, manned and expertly 'pimped up' by each team, will go head to head in hilarious Red Bull style time trials of a specially made downhill race track in the picturesque park.

Local schools, who are part of the Independent State School Partnership (West Kent ISSP) will also be participating in their own head-to-head race, in karts built at school.

Once again our fabulous hosts the legendary TV Chef Rosemary Shrager and the local celebrity superstar, Tom Swift will be commentating to the thousands of spectators which are again expected to turn out to support friends, foes, business associates and rivals in the race of the year!

BROUGHT TO YOU IN COLLABORATION WITH
