Livery Companies Pancake Day RaceThe City's annual inter-livery Pancake Race sees 21 teams racing around the Guildhall yard at noon on Shrove Tuesday competing for frying pan trophies awarded to the winner of each class. It's a colourful event organised by the Poulters' Company, who supply the eggs - essential in the making of the pancakes - with the support of The Cook & The Butler. Every other aspect of the race is allocated to the relevant livery - the Gunmakers start each heat with a bang, the Clockmakers are responsible for the accuracy of the timing, the Fruiterers provide lemons, the Cutlers plastic forks and the Glovers the white gloves worn by each runner. A recent additional attraction has been a specially commissioned piece sung by the Musicians Company. Original participants were Livery companies in some way associated with the making of pancakes with invited teams from the Mansion House and Guildhall but this has been extended to include other Livery Companies and Corporation Departments such as The Old Bailey, preferably with a relationship to the making of pancakes.

 

About Guildhall

Since the Middle Ages the Guildhall has been the centre of Government for the City of London. The current building has stood in the geographical centre of the Square Mile since 1411. It holds the accolade of being the only stone secular building to survive first the Great Fire and then the Blitz. More about Guildhall
