What's On

The Great Spitalfields Pancake Race (Expired)

Shrove Tuesday 13 February 2018 at 12.30pm.

Dray Walk, Old Truman Brewery, Brick Lane E1 6QL.


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 be presented with a beautifully engraved frying pan! The best dressed team will also receive a prize. And there will be prizes for the best behaved team and the runners up and scrumptious pancakes for all entrants.


Every year The Great Spitalfields Pancake Race is organised to raise funds for London’s Air Ambulance the charity that delivers an advanced trauma team to critically injured people in the capital. The charity’s helicopter flies from the roof of the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel.

To enter a team email for an application form and get yourselves sponsored or bring a donation on the day for London’s Air Ambulance, registered charity no: 801013.

The Great Spitalfields Pancake Race is organised by Alternative Arts.
