|Where:||Hernhill, Kent at the Three Horseshoes Pub|
|When:||Saturday in June or July (or even early August!)|
Other wheelie-bin races exist but this is one of the best-known in the UK and is a well established part of the local calendar.Teams of four drink beer and take turns to be propelled in a wheelie-bin by their teammates along the four-hundred-yard course and back. The dustbins are usually customised and their owners in fancy dress, with prizes awarded for costume and conveyance as well as speed. The bins are all damaged and awaiting recycling and are supplied by the local council. There is also live music on site and of course plenty of food and drink.
In 2016 it was on Saturday 16th July – 2017 date is yet to be announced.
