Doing it all again in 2020

It's a GO!

The 2020 Soapbox Derby is planned to take place on Sunday May 10, 2020, the date being changed from the usual Bank Holiday Monday because the May Bank holiday has moved to Friday May 8 to support the celebrations for the 75th Anniversary of VE Day.

As a consequence, the Soapbox Derby has also been moved to the Sunday of that same weekend and is planned to be an integral part of the town’s VE Day Anniversary celebrations.

After four successful years of running the Soapbox Derby from 2016 to 2019, at which thousands of spectators have enjoyed the spectacle and fun of the day, and at which nearly £130,000 has been raised for charity and good causes we are handing over responsibility for the event to our fellow Rotary Club, the Rotary Club of Billericay Mayflower.  Billericay Mayflower club have agreed in principle to organise the event and are presently resolving some final details.
