Cuckooz Commends: Pancake Day
Words by Bryony Rosier, Thursday 08 February 2018

Sharing is caring dear traveller; each week, a member of our knowledgeable team of locals shares their insider knowledge on what’s hot and happening in and around our nests.

 

Loosen those jean buttons travellers… Pancake Day is just around the corner and London is chock-a-block with festivities to celebrate. We’ve put together a list of the best events happening near our nests  to ensure you don’t miss out on the action.

Aldgate

Great Spitalfields Pancake Race

 

Swing by the Truman Brewery and take part in the annual Pancake Race in aid of London’s Air Ambulance. Simply get together in groups of four and bring your most handsome pan to compete alongside others for the highly coveted prize of a custom engraved pan and as many pancakes as you can stomach.  Heats begin at 12:30 sharp so get there in plenty of time and make sure to don your most festive outfit (awards are given for best dressed!) Co-ordination isn’t your strong point? Not to worry – pancakes are given to everyone involved so you won’t miss out!

Race begins at 12pm, followed by pancakes, beer and ale on tap at the nearby Lamb Tavern.
