Oyster Eating Competition

Date:Saturday 21st July 2018
Start Time:15:00
Location:The Harbour Stage with Anno Distillers, Whitstable Harbour

Supported by Whitstable Pie & Mash

Ready, set, go!  Don’t spit, try not to wretch, just swallow! The challenge is simple – get half a dozen oysters and half a pint beer down your neck in the fastest time (and keep it there) to win! In perhaps the most reliably funny and messy moments of the festival, a true gullet-defying-gobbler will emerge from the throng and be proclaimed the 2018 Oyster Eating Champion.  Limber up, get that gag reflex under control and hone your technique – visit any number of fine Whitstable establishments to get practicing!

There are a max of 36 participants in the competition.  Sign up on the day at the Harbour Stage Bar.  Entry is £5.

If you’re one of the lucky residents in the Whitstabubble, please leave the car at home when attending #WOF18 whenever possible. It’s better for the environment, it's better for the town and it’s better for you!


We will be playing at the #whitstable Oyster Festival this Sunday 22nd 6.30-8pm x #whitstableoysterfestival #kent

Fantastic to have you onboard!
