The Great Spitalfields Pancake Race

Get in training for Shrove Tuesday and join in the Great Spitalfields Pancake Race. All you need to get together is a team of four people suitably dressed up (or down) to enter in the relay race. Bring your own frying pan and we'll provide the pancakes.

The race will be run along Dray Walk at The Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane and all you have to do is toss the pancake a couple of times en route. The heats will start at 12.30pm followed by the finals and the prize giving. The winners will receive a beautifully engraved - you've guessed it - frying pan! And there will be prizes for the runners up, the best behaved team and the best dressed team donated by Cath Kidston.

Hot Pancakes will be provided by Csaba’s Hungarian Creperie.

Music by the Lost Marbles String Band and clowns provided by the E Team will all lend to the atmosphere of this highly entertaining, eccentric occasion.

The event is being organised by ALTERNATIVE ARTS in aid of London’s Air Ambulance,
