25,000 Attend 2013 Bexhill Sea Angling Festival

08.10.13

Bexhill 2013

Local restaurants, retailers, community groups and top experts from the Billingsgate Seafood Training School entertained the Bexhill festival-goers while anglers competed in a series of big prize matches and angling coaches provided the public with free casting sessions.

Fishing conditions were tough over the course of the nine-day festival with the boat fishing match being delayed by a week as the weather over the final weekend deteriorated.

The lucky winners walked away with big cash prizes and even a fishing holiday to Norway while talented juniors who competed in the junior match were identified to enter our Talent Pathway programme.

Attracting 25,000 people to a festival in a town of 40,000 residents makes the Bexhill Sea Angling Festival one of, if not the, biggest community angling event ever to have been staged in England and has brought sea angling right into the heart of the local community. The Angling Trust was very proud to be a partner in the festival once again – well done to all those volunteers involved in making it such a success.
