Pagham Pram Race – Boxing Day 2013

Posted on December 30, 2013


So I was in the fortunate situation to be down in Pagham, West Sussex on Boxing day after getting a lift down from London on Crimbo evening.

We had seen signposts of the event earlier in the week and thought it’d be wonderful to go down and get some unofficial shots of the event.

The history of the event goes back 60 years – and according to their website, “a group of demobbed servicemen decided they would race. One pushing the pram and another as a baby in it, making sure to drink a pint each, at all the villiage pubs. The prize, a christmas fruit cake”

Since then it has become an event full of contestants in wonderful fancy dress and ingenious outfits.
