The annual Richards Castle Soap Box Derby will be back this summer, taking place on Sunday 8th July 2018 (10am till 4pm) on Hanway Common.

Entries forms are now available for Adult and Junior categories, £30 per Soap Box,  click here for more information.

In 2017 a phenomenal £100k milestone was smashed by Richards Castle Soap Box Derby following 14 years of fundraising by organising soap box racing down Hanway Common. The community run event has donated a whooping £103,770!

Richards Castle Soap Box Derby has always been about local money raised going to local causes. Since the first soap box cart rolled down the hill in 2004 the event organised by volunteers from the village has donated funds to over 50 different charities and local causes.

The Soap Box Derby is a fun day out which succeeds in raising money which will make a real difference to local people. The team of local volunteers put on a fantastic event, with a full programme of Soap Box racing and entertainment

We are pleased to announce the three main charities which this year’s Soap Box will be supporting:

ECHO, The Cart Shed and Working Together, click here for more information.
