Bed Race

The Great Knaresborough Bed Race is the Lions’ biggest event of the year and a fantastic day out in Knaresborough for thousands of people. It’s an unforgettable experience for competitors and spectators alike.

This year’s race is no longer open to applications from potential competitors (and it’s still too early to apply for next year!)

Come along and join in the festivities on Saturday 10th June, including the best dressed bed judging at the Castle, the parade through the town, the entertainments and stalls at Conyngham Hall, and of course, the spectacular race itself. I would say that there’s nothing else like it – but in fact, various bed races around the world have sprung up in recent years, having been inspired by Knaresborough’s original!
