‘Wacky Races’

The weird and wonderful ‘Wacky Races’ return once again to Redcross Way as part of this year’s Great Get Together Bankside.

Channel your inner Dick Dastardly, Peter Perfect or Penelope Pitstop for a fun-filled afternoon of jaw-dropping races. All under the stewardship of those fine fellows from the Gentlemen Baristas. Whilst game participation is encouraged, it can be just as much fun to be a spectator, soaking up the sun and watching the hilarity unfold!

This years races are:

  • Flipper Race

  • Space Hopper Race

  • Egg and Spoon

  • Three Legged Race

  • Wheelbarrow Race
