We have partnered with a professional organisation to be able to deliver a high quality, safety assured event called Super Soapbox Challenge.

The organisers have a wealth of knowledge and expertise on creating an event that delivers not only for the spectator, but also the participants.  

As events of this nature can draw in big crowds, it was paramount to us that we had a reputable company on hand that could help us create amazing events, in tight and and unusual spaces, and they have delivered every time!


Funding Information

The Yorkshire Coast Soapbox Challenge is a free spectators event that sees wild and uniquely designed soapboxes run time trials through town centres throughout the UK.  

In 2021 we saw the Soapbox challenge come to the Yorkshire Coast with Filey as its first town, and in 2022 we brought it back to Bridlington seafront.

Events like these are geared up to be big footfall drivers for people who want to cheer on the participants and are structured to give people time to watch the soapboxes run the race, break for lunch, and let people see the soapboxes when they are out of action.

If you want to see this come to your town in 2023, let us know via the survey link above 👆
