Come along on Sunday 18th June 2023 to watch brave soapbox racers hurtle down our huge ramp outside the Town Hall, all the way down Albert Road, to the finish line outside Tubbs of Colne at The Colne BID Super Soapbox Challenge.

It’ll be a great day out for all the family with continual commentary and all the action visible on large format screens. As well as the excitement on the course itself, there’ll be a funfair, live music and lots of food and drink concessions to choose from. Watch out for our celebrity guest! You’ll be able to meet our favourite champion racer, Sir Sidney Cartalot too! Don’t forget, for spectators, this is a FREE community event, so you really have no excuse not to be there!

For the safety of both participants and attendees, the entire course will have security fencing and hay bales in place.
