Inter-Livery Pancake Race

1:30pm – 3:00pm
Free

Dressed in their full regalia, the members of the related Liveries of London compete in this pancake-flipping race. As usual, crowds 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 30 teams competing in their traditional clothes. Only time will tell which guild will win the coveted frying pan trophy.

All that talk of flipping get your appetite going? Check out our guide to London’s incredible pancakes from around the world.
