GET GEARED UP FOR RED NOSE DAY

Red Nose Day is back and with it a fabulous flurry of new merchandise

Red Nose Day is back with a bang on Friday 15th March and this year Comic Relief is asking the nation to come together and make a difference to people’s lives both here in the UK and worldwide. 

People across the UK will be dancing, baking, climbing and doing whatever takes their fancy to raise money for Comic Relief, all in the name of fun, which is what it’s all about after all. So why not do it in style - simply put on a Red Nose and snap up some of this year’s special Red Nose Day accessories…

This year we’ve got eleven new Red Noses. Well, nine Red Noses, a rare green one, and an even rarer white nose designed by a UK school pupil.

For the first time ever, you can bring your Red Nose to life, by scanning the QR code on the box with your phone and using the ‘Red Nose’ app from the App or Play store.
