Oxford v Cambridge Goat RaceOxford and Cambridge are once again gearing up for a nail biting and highly competitive race and the stakes are high in this annual fight for the winner's title. No, not the Oxford v Cambridge Boat Race. We are, in fact, referring to the equally prestigious (okay, maybe not quite) Oxford v Cambridge Goat Race. Two feisty goats - one named Oxford, the other named Cambridge - will embark on the second annual race, which will take place only a few miles from the intense rowing competition on the Thames. As well as the race itself, Spitalfields City Farm will also play host to an array of goat pun related activities - last year saw the Nice Butt Contest and How Low Can You Goat. There will also be a chance for the winning goat to revel in its glory at the Winners Parade and the day will finish with a lively after party.

 

About Spitalfields City Farm

There's loads to do at the 1.3 acre Spitalfields City Farm. Come and meet Bayleaf the donkey and Bentley the goat - just a few of the cute and cuddly animals dotted around this lush, sprawling plot. Other animal residents include a miniature Shetland pony, Kune-kune pigs, ducks, geese and North Ronaldsay sheep. More about Spitalfields City Farm
