Seafront Soapbox Race

About

Save the date! Easter Monday 2021 (5th April) will see a new event take place in Eastbourne where participants are encouraged to build their own soapbox in order to race each other along the seafront. The race will take place on the seafront, Dukes Drive and finish at Helen Gardens.

Spectators are able to watch these wacky creations as they hilariously whizz around corners, dodge hay bales and mount ramps with the hope of staying in one piece by the time they reach the finish line! Entries will cost £25 with a cash prize up for grabs for the fastest soapbox and the wackiest creation.

Think you’ve got what it takes to build something humorous and memorable, then email soapbox@lewes-eastbourne.gov.uk for more information.
