The Knaresborough Bed Race is a world famous event first established in 1966 by the Knaresborough Round Table. Now organised and run by the Knaresborough Lions Club, the main aim of which is to raise funds for a large number of charities. This historic event consists of awards for the best dressed bed, a parade through the streets of Knaresborough followed by a time trial over a 2.4 mile course ending up with a swim through the icy waters of the River Nidd; all in fancy dress!
Being local, this initiative is fondly supported by TIG. TIG is not only one of the highest profile sponsors for this charitable event but they are also the preferred print supplier. Each year sees a new focus for the design of the event programme and working to tight deadlines, TIG has provided the skills, expertise and capabilities to print the vast quantities required for the large numbers attracted to this wondrous spectacle.
