Hinckley BID Soap Box Derby, Leicestershire
The Hinckley BID Soap Box Derby is intended as an annual fun day for the teams, supporters and spectators of all ages from the Hinckley area, and beyond. As an event, it is also intended to raise money for local charities.
The aim is to encourage up to 50 Soap Box Teams to compete.
The idea is to utilise the natural hill on Castle Street for individual 'Time-Trial' performances – 3 runs per Team. The course will start from the Church Walk junction and end in Market Square.
'Themed' Soap Boxes are especially encouraged since they provide the most interest to spectators.
Although an Entry fee is required (£25 per team), this event is also subsidised by the Hinckley Town Centre Partnership.
