Better Bankside is a business improvement district that covers from Southwark Bridge to London Bridge. They hold an annual Pancake Day Race to raise money for charity. Expect to see five heats plus a winners' race. It's a simple relay race with four members in each team (maximum of 25 teams).
The Dean of Southwark Cathedral will begin the race and all are welcome to come along, support their teams and enjoy the live music.
For spectators and participants Borough Market trader Baxter's and The Refectory at the Cathedral will be selling pancakes with a variety of toppings: cinnamon, lemon, nutella, fruit salad and banana. Other traders from Borough Market will be there on the day providing a host of sweet treats and the market’s Demonstration Kitchen with resident chef Hayley Edwards will be there to show you how to create a range of delicious pancake fillings from the Market’s produce.
