Soap Box Race Planned For Micklegate Cobbles !


Daredevils in soap boxes will be hurtling down the cobbles of Micklegate next summer.

The Micklegate Run Soap Box Challenge is planned for August 2016 – one of a raft of ideas to revitalise this historic York street.

It comes from the Micklegate Business Initiative, a new group formed by 25 local businesses.

Their aim is to work together to improve and reclaim the famous street in York. They are planning events for shoppers and families including an artisan market this Christmas.

Over the last few years Micklegate has suffered with eleven shops becoming empty, and footfall reducing as a result.
