  • What is the PramFest?
    The PramFest is an annual event to raise money for the Prince of Wales Hospice. The event has a pram race between Carr Bridge and the Cricket Club, the route being about 3 miles long. The finish line at the Cricket Club is where the festival is with live bands, stalls, rides, food and much more.
  • What can I expect on the day?
    On the cricket field, there will be a fun fair, food and drink stalls, craft and local business stalls, raffles, tombolas, welly wanging and other fun and games. There will be a trailer with a live DJ and towards the end of the afternoon and in to the evening, there will be a number of live bands playing a variety of songs for everyone to dance to. The Cricket Club will stock the bar and everyone should have a great time.
  • What are the rules of the day?
    This is a family event so we expect everyone to behave responsibly and respectfully. No alcohol can be brought on to the field but there will be bars open for drinks. A valid wristband is needed to enter the field.
  • How is the winner decided?
    The winning team is the team who all cross the line first. Every member of the team must cross the line before you are deemed to have finished. Winners will be presented with a trophy.

  • What is a pram?
    The rules around what constitutes a pram are very loose. The event is meant to be fun and not that competitive so pretty much anything goes. The basic rules are that it must have a seat and wheels, not be powered in any way and be suitable for the route, which starts on a field! Therefore, smaller wheels, like those found on a shopping trolley, are not suitable. If you're not sure, just ask!
  • How many in a team?
    Teams can be between 2 and 6. Each competitor has to pay the entry fee which is currently £10 per person.
  • How much is entry?

    The route is from Carr Bridge playing fields, working down Mill Lane to the Beverley Arms. It then goes to the Doncaster Road estate and back across Mill Lane up Dando's Way to the Mason's Arms. Then up Bell Lane to Hardaker's Lane and back on Dando way to the Angel Inn. The competitors then work their way down Wakefield Road to the Cricket Club, stopping at the Royal Legion and The Boot & Shoe en route.
