Dress up, bring your own frying pan and gather three friends to take part in the Great Spitalfields Pancake Race this Shrove Tuesday. Teams of four race, pan in hand, along Dray Walk on Brick Lane while tossing their pancakes on this eccentric occasion.
The victors will be given an engraved frying pan and some baking goodies, while prizes will also be awarded for the best dressed. Those just watching can enjoy the stacks of hot pancakes and live music. Races start at 12.30pm.
