The craziest and funniest event in Kent! The World Custard Pie Championships is one event definitely not to be missed!!

All the team slots for the main event have now been filled – however Kent Sports Trust have teamed up to offer a fundraising kids Wet Sponge target throwing competition between 12noon and 1pm – just before the main event gets started!

The main Custard Pie event is free to come and watch, so come down and cheer on your favourite fancy dress-clad team – and if you want to get involved in the Wet Sponge throwing challenge then all we ask is for a small donation on the day.

You can see more about the main event on their link here. The event is being held at Coxheath, Maidstone, Kent.
