Inter Livery Pancake Race cheapside 12 noon -1pm

Dressed in their full regalia, the members of the related Liveries of London will compete in this pancake-flipping race in Guildhall Yard for the crown. Organised by the Poulters (egg suppliers) the event employs the skills of a variety of liveries – clockmakers time it, Gunmakers fire the starting pistol, glovers provide the white gloves worn by racers, the Fruiterers provide lemons and the cutlers provide the forks! This is a really fun event, with 21 teams competing in their traditional clothes and in fancy dress to win the frying pan trophies of success!
