The annual Elver Eating Championships is back at Frampton Country Fair this September 2022.

The competition will take place on Sunday 11 September 2022 as part of the spectacular Frampton Country Fair, where competitors are challenged to eat a plateful of two-inch-long eel-shaped fish, in the quickest time.

After a shortage of eels put a halt on proceedings for four decades, the competition made a triumphant comeback in 2015 with a sustainable, man-made, Spanish alternative. The replacements affectionately known as el-vers.

There’s plenty more to see and do throughout the day, too, with a farmers’ market, various shows and children’s activities also taking place at Frampton Country Fair.
