Celebrate the launch of Rye Bay Scallop Week with our infamous, alternative pageant. Old fashioned, end-of-the-pier entertainment for all the family – come along, bring the kids, and enjoy the show – OR EVEN TAKE PART.

Hosted by the fabulous Lorraine Bowen, Boogaloo Stu and last year’s winner, the lovely Brittany. Entrants will compete to be crowned SCALLOP KING or QUEEN SCALLOP. Competition will be judged on the best marine-inspired costume, and on a ‘talent’ (sing a song, read a poem or bring along something you’ve made).

LITTLE FISH (under 14s) COMPETITION BEGINS 5PM

BIG FISH (over 14s) COMPETITION BEGINS 7PM

Fun, games and sea shanties all night! Fabulous prizes!

If you or yours would like to enter, email karen@theshipinnrye.co.uk – or just rock up on the day by 4.30pm.
