Dressed in their full regalia, the members of the related Liveries of London will compete in this pancake-flipping race. As usual, crowds will gather to watch the race for the crown in Guildhall Yard. 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. Only time will tell which guild will win the coveted frying pan trophy.
