Soapbox races have dramatically increased in popularity, with events being held all over the world in exotic locations such as Mumbai and Hong Kong. Soapbox races can be a wacky affair and is similar to Pimp My Barrow. If you think you’re confident and crazy enough to take part, make sure to submit your entry by 31 March.

Those who are lucky enough to compete will do so in front of a 30,000 strong crowd – more than Carrow Road’s capatcity! Teams are chosen on their creativity, personality and ingenuity. If you don’t want to compete but still want to have a fun day out on a student budget, tickets can be purchased for just £5.
