General information

The 24rd Hillsborough Oyster Festival kicks off on Tuesday the 30th of August promising once again a cram packed programme of events and activities for all the family including the Annual World International Oyster Eating Championships.The Guinness World Record for eating the most oysters was made at the 2005 festival, at a whopping 233 in three minutes by the county’s very own Colin Shirlow. The search for the new record breaker is on, but challengers will have to bring their mollusc-slurping A-game in order to beat Shirlow's shuck.
