Pickle Wars 18

The Charity Event of The Year

Sunday 27th January 2019
12 noon onwards


Get pickling for the best Pickled Onion competition ever!

Auction Brochure

Pickle Wars, now in it's 18th glorious year, is an event not to be missed and ranks up there with Cowes Week on the social calendar. From it's lowly beginings of just a couple of Sunday lunchtime drinkers trying to outdo each other with their onions to last years competition with over 50 entries, Pickle Wars has been an outstanding success and has had the honour of raising over £65,000 for The Children's Liver Disease Foundation.

The day itself is a family friendly fun day and kicks off at noon with everyone able to take part in the tasting. This is a highly sofisticated and technical part of the day that involves people trying onions and
marking down the scores on a piece of paper!!

All the scores are collated to find out who the new Pickle King or Queen will be and with the prize for this hugely acclaimed accolade being a half of lager and your name being added to the Pickle Wars shield, tension is always high and rivalries are keenly fought out.

After the tasting, what can only be described as 'The Biggest Raffle in Gurnard' commences with normally over 60 raffle prizes ranging from Gift Vouchers and bottles of spirits to Brewery Trips and Beer fridges. Tickets for this fantastic raffle go on sale early January and are priced at just £1 per strip. BARGAIN!

After all the rafflle prizes are gone, the moment of the afternoon is handed over to the highly skilled auctioneer and his beautiful assistant, who will guide you effortlessly through the items available for purchase at often bargain basement prices. You could find yourself the proud owner of some Football Memorabilia or you could be about to embark on a Game Shooting Expedition or setting Sail on a Yacht during Cowes Week. There are always some cracking lots to be won and all safely in the knowledge that every penny of your money is going to charity.

If you have a raffle prize you would like to donate or would like to offer up an auction lot then please contact us.
