Location: Coxheath Village Hall Grounds 50 Stockett Ln, Coxheath, Maidstone ME17 4PX

The event, which is held in Coxheath near Maidstone, will see 32 teams compete against each other throwing custard pies, made using a secret recipe designed by Mr Pastry when the championships were first held in 1967.
The event, which will be the 52nd championships, is free and includes a family fun day.
Inspired by Charlie Chaplin, the World Custard Pie Championships have been held in the village since 1967 and have gone from strength to strength attracting teams from across the globe.

The rules are simple. The players are divided into teams of four, and each scores points depending on where their thrown pie hits a member of the opposing team. Every player must throw with their left hand. Points are awarded and deducted by our very stringent judges whose decision is final!
With fancy dress optional, teams dress in Victorian regalia or futuristic 2020 outfits, the world famous flan-flinging contest is sure to be a great family fun day out.
