Oxford vs Cambridge Goat Race The stakes are high as Oxford and Cambridge once again come head-to-head in a nail-biting and highly competitive race. No, this isn't the famous Boat Race but the equally prestigious (okay, maybe not quite) Oxford vs Cambridge Goat Race . Two feisty goats - one named Oxford, the other Cambridge - embark on the sixth annual race, which takes place at Spitalfields City Farm on the same day as the Boat Race. Last year, Barney the pygmy goat - who started Cambridge's winning streak back in 2009 - came out of retirement and made it five in a row for Cambridge. There are numerous other goat-related activities on offer as well as food & market stalls, live music, beer & cocktail bars, arts & crafts stands and a bookie & sweepstake tent.

 

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
