Save the date! The legendary Better Bankside Pancake Day Race has crêped up fast, and is back on Tuesday 28 February 2017. Every year on Shrove Tuesday, Bankside businesses get a team together and compete with their neighbours in a fast and furious pancake-flipping relay. 

Put forward a team and support members of the Bankside business community as they show off their pancake-tossing skills. All proceeds will go towards Paintings in Hospitals, a charity that uses visual art and creative activities to improve the health and wellbeing of patients, carers and the public. There will also be yummy pancakes available throughout the event (free for our racers!). 

The Prizes... 

The winning team will receive a round of pancakes from Where the Pancakes Are, an item of your choice from Kit and Ace on Park Street, and a goodie bag of Borough Market merchandise.  


The races will start at 12.30pm and finish at around 2.00pm on 28 February 2017, on Stoney Street by Borough Market.

How do I enter?

Better Bankside member businesses can submit teams of four runners and we have space for 25 teams overall to compete. To enter a team for the event, email info [at] with a team name and the names of those racing. Whether you have a whip around the office, have a collection bucket or personally donate online, teams will need to donate £25 to complete their entry to our JustGiving page. Remember to add your team/company name to your donation so we know it's yours! 

Can I watch?

Please come down to cheer on your colleagues, friends, families and strangers. Join us to support a great cause while having a flippin' fabulous time.
