The Great Spitalfields Pancake RaceIn celebration of Shrove Tuesday, pancake enthusiasts leg it down Dray Walk at The Old Truman Brewery near Brick Lane with a frying pan and slab of batter for a relay race with a difference. All participants need for The Great Spitalfields Pancake Race is a team of four spirited souls dressed up in wacky costumes and armed with a frying pan (pancakes are provided). Heats kick off at 12.30pm, followed by the finals and ceremonial prize-giving (for the winners: an engraved frying pan, of course). All entrants receive hot pancakes and there's an award for the best-dressed team too so pick a theme and don the appropriate garb - however ridiculous. It's a really eccentric occasion made only better by the wandering clowns and string band playing in the background. If you're visiting the pancake race from out of London and need accommodation, take a look at our hotels near The Old Truman Brewery.

 

About The Old Truman Brewery

Popular with the Shoreditch crowd on the weekends, The Old Truman Brewery houses more than 200 small, creative businesses, a bar and several areas for hire. It encompasses 19 buildings, linked by a series of alleyways and courtyards, but the main area - the Boiler House - is easily identified by its 49-metre chimneystack with 'Truman' written up the side.
