The Ladies Wot Walk event, where women wear the trousers and men dress up as the fairer sex, got off to a tee last Sunday (May 17) at Hastings Crazy Golf Course.

Staged by Hastings Borough Bonfire Society (HBBS) the first World Cross Dressing Crazy Golf Tournament was held in Hastings to help raise funds for the Hastings Borough Bonfire and Firework Display.

The event saw around 20 men, women and children don their finest dressing up clothes and in a cloud of make-up and hairspray they gathered at the White Rock Hotel by Hastings Pier.

The head turning colourful procession then made their way through the town centre to the Crazy Golf Course.

To date the event has raised around £400.

HBBS stages fund-raising events throughout the year, to pay for the staging of the most spectacular free event in East Sussex. “The Hastings Bonfire and Firework display costs around £17,000 to put on for the people of the town,” said HBBS chairman Nick Lynas. “We’re always looking at new ways to raise funds, which are also good fun and cause a stir, hence the first World Cross Dressing Crazy Golf Tournament.”

Hastings Bonfire is a free event, funded by Hastings Borough Bonfire Society. All money collected on the night goes to local charities. Last year HBBS raised just over £4,200. This year’s Hastings Bonfire and Firework Display takes place on Saturday, October 17. Visit:
