The Pram Race
The Cavaliers Pram race is an annual fundraising
event which takes place on a sunny evening usually in
The idea is its a 'race' where all your
team (who just happen to be in fancy dress) have to
get round a set route in the shortest possible time
with their 'Pram'.
Your pram need not be an actual pram,
but it does need to be something you have to push, we
have had everything from goal posts to a moblie water
feature to a huge piece of cheese!! Your fancy dress
idea also has to complement your 'Pram'.
The route is set around the Carnival Pubs
of Bridgwater..... yes all 13 of them! at the start
you are given a sheet with all the Pubs listed on them,
every team member has to have a drink in each pub and
you have to get your sheet signed off by a member of
bar staff to prove you have been there. Then you push
your pram to the next pub and so on. The winning team
is the full team and pram back to the
Newmarket in the shortest possible time.
Once all the teams are back we normally
manage a bit more alcohol and then a party ensues.
One of the best nights of the Carnival
fundraising year!! (but the next day can be a bit blurred)
