The Raucous Races were two ‘family fun day’ events in September 2016 and 2017, organised by the Council in partnership with Enter Edem an art and theatre company specialising in public events on streets and in unlikely locations.

The races were held at Victoria Park (the site of a former racecourse) and involved a range of ‘Victorian’ characters and even Richard III, entertaining park visitors. A wide range of activities were on offer including the opportunity to take part in races on top of horsey space-hoppers.

Careful selection of characters and activities meant lots of fun that linked well with the park’s heritage and history.
