Pancake Day, or Shrove Tuesday falls between 2 February and 9 March, depending on the date for Easter. Pancake Day in London is traditionally celebrated with pancake races.

In 2017, Pancake Day falls on 28 February.

As well as eating pancakes, there's a long tradition of pancake races in London. If you don't fancy racing yourself, you can always cheer on the runners.

Get in training for Shrove Tuesday and join in the Great Spitalfields Pancake Race. All you need to get together is a team of four people suitably dressed up (or down) to enter in the relay race. Bring your own frying pan and we'll provide the pancakes. The race will be run along Dray Walk at The Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane and all you have to do is toss the pancake a couple of times en route.

The heats will start at 12.30pm followed by the finals and the prize giving. The winners will receive a beautifully engraved - you've guessed it - frying pan! The best dressed team will also receive a prize. And there will be prizes for runners up and scrumptious pancakes for all entrants.
