Whats On
Throw caution to the wind on Shrove Tuesday and indulge in that age old custom of cramming in as many pancakes and crepes as possible at these Pancake Day London events. Whether it's free pancakes, gourmet crepes or simply the spectacle of watching runners make an exhibition of themselves, you're sure to find something of interest around the city.

Long standing tradition
More traditionally known as Shrove Tuesday, Pancake Day is historically the time when families used up ingredients such as milk and eggs before fasting during Lent. Nowadays, we're more likely to stock up on the essentials specially for the occasion or head outdoors to enjoy the series of Pancake Day London events taking place across the city; let's face it, the pancakes taste all that sweeter if it's someone else who's done the cooking.
