Red Nose Day is fast approaching, with this year’s fundraiser taking place on March 19th. If you want to take part, here’s where you can buy a red nose.
Every year since 1998, British Charity Comic Relief launches Red Nose Day, a UK-wide campaign that aims to raise money to help end child poverty around the world.
This year, it falls on March 19th, and there are loads of different ways you can do your bit to raise life-changing cash for children who need it.
One of the most popular ways of raising money is by buying a red nose, and at least 75p of the sale of every red nose goes to Comic Relief.
So, where can you buy a red nose this year? Let’s find out.
Where to buy a Red Nose 2021

The 2021 Red Noses are wildlife characters
Every year, the famous Red Nose takes on a new design, with some of the most recent ones being dinosaurs and famous celebrities.
This year’s noses are all wildlife characters and there are ten different ones to choose from including a fox, badger, ladybird, owl, squirrel, tomato and more.
The wildlife and nature theme was chosen because Comic Relief has made its red noses plastic-free for the first time ever.
Comic Relief launches first-ever plastic-free Red Nose
The 2021 red noses have taken over 18 months to develop and are made from a natural sugar cane byproduct which means they are biodegradable, plastic free and plant based.
Comic Relief co-founder Richard Curtis said: “I’m extremely pleased that we have created the first plastic-free nose for Red Nose Day 2021 – it is amazing what you can create from a sugar cane product.”
“Our new Nose marks a strong step on our sustainability journey,” he continued before saying:
“We are committed to designing a more sustainable Nose every year, while continuing to make them attractive and fun, and recognise we still have a lot of work to do in creating the perfect model.”
