Tuesday 5 March 2019
Hosted by the Worshipful Company of Poulters, teams of four competitors wearing either fancy dress or full regalia (or perhaps a combination thereof), race around the Guildhall Yard tossing their pancakes. The victors receive, fittingly, frying pans as well as a trophy.
Each of the participating trades have their own appropriate role in the proceedings, for example the Gunmakers start each race literally with a bang, Clockmakers time the heats, and Fruiterers provide lemons to accompany the pancakes. The competition has been running annually for over 10 years and proceeds go to charitable causes.
The Master and Wardens will be part of the team. Please show your support and join the fun. For more details please email the Clerk.
