Great Knaresborough Bed Race theme announced for 2024

Knaresborough Lions Club have announced the theme for the Great Knaresborough Bed Race when it returns for 2024.

Great Knaresborough Bed Race theme announced for 2024 Knaresborough Lions Club have announced the theme for the Great Knaresborough Bed Race ahead of its return in 2024. Ideas came in from club members, runners and event supporters. And the winning idea of 'Great Inventions And Technology Through The Ages' was suggested by long-term bed race supporters from Somerset, Joe Fielder and Caroline Fletcher. Great Knaresborough Bed Race Chairman, Martin Brock, said:

"Whilst our minds are very much focussed on the Christmas at this time of year, we also need to keep planning 2024’s bed race. "Permissions for land usage and road closures are being sought, and with entries opening on January 1st, it’s important that we choose a theme for the event."
Martin added:
"With literally thousands of years of history to choose from, this theme was a clear winner when it came to the vote. "We are sure as always that the teams will do the event proud with some amazing designs for the parade.”
Knaresborough Lions at Christmas In the immediate present, the much-loved Santa’s sleigh and Lions mulled wine wagon will be making their annual appearances in Knaresborough. Father Christmas will be appearing at both Bright Friday (Friday 24th November) and the town’s Christmas market the following weekend (December 3rd-4th) with mulled wine on sale at both events. Santa’s sleigh will also start touring the streets of the town from Monday 27th November. Meanwhile, the club are inviting final entries for their community fund which closes on Thursday 30 November. Local constituted clubs and groups are invited to apply for small grants as part of the fund. Full details and application form can be found on the club’s website here.
