Launch of the Larkhall Festival Soapbox Derby

The Larkhall Festival Soapbox Derby is an open-to-all race for teams made up of a mixture of adults and children. Enter homemade carts of your own design to stake your place on the winner’s podium! We actively promote creative and crazy designs for all carts and there will be a prize for the best cart, but don’t worry if you’re not feeling too creative, carts can be anything from an old painted wheelbarrow to a more elaborate design of your choice.

All carts entered into the race must be entirely home-made and powered completely by hand or foot – unassisted by motors. Each cart should have a minimum crew of one child.

The carts will gather at the front of the Bladud’s head from 13:00 and the race, to the chequered flag at the Larkhall Inn will start at 14:00

So come on ladies, gentlemen and children of Larkhall, get building and lets have some fun!!
