Scallop Queen 2015

Rye Bay Scallop Queen 2015!

Announcing the Rye Bay Scallop Week Queen 2015! Yasmine Clemson was delighted to be selected as Scallop Queen at the events opening night at the Ypres Castle Inn. Yasmine also celebrates her birthday during Rye Bay Scallop Week so there will be double celebrations ahead!

Yasmine is photographed here in the “George Clooney” suite at The George in Rye where Mr Clooney stayed during the filming of the Monuments Men.

There are still some superb events this weekend including Kevin and Hannah playing at the Queen’s Head Inn on Friday 27th. Kevin Armstrong (who is to play with Iggy Pop at the Wembley concerts opening for the Foo Fighters) will be performing an acoustic set with X Factor’s Hannah Bradbeer.

Top Rye chef Kyle Tatner will once again be cooking up a smoked Rye Bay fish chowder and slow braised pork belly and Rye Bay scallop kebabs with sticky sweet glaze at Olde Worlde Wines from 4pm on Friday and from midday on Saturday.

On Saturday morning Russell Drew will be found at Market Fisheries talking about scalloping and showing off his shucking skills. There’ll be another chance to taste his Scallop Cerviche too!

Hot Potatoes are performing at The Queen’s Head Inn on Saturday evening and The Ship Inn will have their “Scallops on Stage” menu available.

Sunday it’s time for the “What a Load of Scallops” race (10am at The Ship Inn) and in the afternoon at 4pm Martin Blackman and Jim Board are playing at the White Dog Inn at Ewhurst Green. Titus will then be performing at 7pm at the Ypres Castle Inn.
