This is that famous day when teams in fancy dress race around all the town’s hostelries with much merriment – The Whitchurch Pub Race – organised by the Whitchurch Festival Association.

Teams of 3 to 5 entrants, joined together by rope or cord, visit all the town’s pubs, to enjoy a half at each, while collecting money for local good causes. Many of the stops will also be having special entertainment and attractions on the day so it is also a great time to visit the town’s public houses.

This year’s event starts at the Bell and finishes at the Red House, with the first team setting off at 5.00pm. Prizes are offered for the most money raised, the best fancy dress, the fastest team, and the ‘top team effort’.

Full details of the route and the teams can be found at: PUB RACE PREVIEW
