Crazy Jeans Events Ltd launched after successful soapbox race

The Mead School in Tunbridge Wells gave a professional level performance in the  ISA drama contests

Following the successful Crazy Jeans Soapbox Kart Race, more ‘weird and wacky’ events could be on their way to Tunbridge Wells.

Last month’s race, which was sponsored by Markerstudy Group, attracted more than 5,000 to Dunorlan Park and led to thousands being donated to charity.

Now Nicole Piesse Turner, of media and marketing agency Chatty Hatter, and Garry Jeffery, owner of St John’s Road bar Jean’s Kitchen, have now set up Crazy Jeans Events Ltd.

And their first venture will be hosting a ‘bigger and better’ kart race in 2019, with more teams invited to build the homemade wacky wagons to negotiate the course’s hill and obstacles.

The time trial event saw 40 businesses and organisations take part this year and next year will also be open to the general public and schools.


All proceeds went to local charities Hospice in the Weald and ellenor.

Ms Piesse Turner said: ‘Crazy Jean’s was such a success we’ve had a lot of people asking if we’re coming back again next year with the kart race and the answer is yes.

‘We’ve launched a new company, Crazy Jean’s Events Ltd, which will not only host the 2019 kart race but more weird and wacky events in Tunbridge Wells – so watch this space.

‘As well as raising lots of money for charity again, Chatty Hatter is also planning to work with many more local businesses in the area.

‘We’ve got a lot of talent on our team and working with more companies in our thriving community is part of our on-going plan to help champion Tunbridge Wells.’
