Red Bull Soapbox RaceThe adrenaline fuelled Red Bull Soapbox Race will be coming to Alexandra Palace this July for a day of creativity and grit determination. The international event sees participants race homemade non-motorised vehicles, the more unique and outrageous the better, in an event that's run on nothing but sheer courage, the force of gravity and maybe a little Red Bull. The race has been running since its inaugural event in Brussels in the year 2000 and since then the likes of Australia, South Africa, Helsinki, Jamaica and Italy have witnessed a piano, a giant baby carriage, a rodeo clown, an oversized corn on the cob and The Golden Gate Bridge whizz down their hills. For rules, judging criteria and details on how to enter, visit the official website.

 

About Alexandra Palace

After a shaky start - destroyed by fire 16 days after 'The People's Palace' first opened in 1873 - Alexandra Palace re-opened again two years later becoming the place from where the BBC beamed its first broadcast in 1935. The palace title maybe a little misleading - it's charm being more shabby chic than regal. More about Alexandra Palace
