Portishead Soapbox Race

Sunday 15th July, 2018
The wackiest race in the South West returns for more summer family fun!

After an incredible first year in 2017, Portishead Soapbox Race is returning with an even bigger and better event on Sunday 15 July 2018

With 40 teams signed up to rally down Esplanade Road in makeshift soapboxes, the battle will be on to conquer any obstacles on the wacky race course and take home the coveted trophy!

With a children’s funfair, face-painting, food and bar tents, and craft market traders, an amazing 10,000 spectators are expected this year for a whole host of family fun.

As the official charity partner for the Race, St Peter's Hospice hopes to raise vital funds towards our Room to Care Appeal with bucket collections. Be sure to buy one of the programmes too!

It’s going to be a great day out for all the family, and better yet, there’s no entry fee for spectators! This is one Somerset summer event not to miss, so put the date in your diaries!
