PANCAKE DAY…

Pancake Day (another name for Shrove Tuesday) is Tuesday 8th March.

Pancake Day is the last day before Lent and so traditionally pancakes are eaten (to use up the eggs and fat which were often not eaten during the fasting period). A Great Pancake Race takes place on Pancake day each year in London on Tower Hill Terrace, in front of the church of All Hallows by the Tower. This is a great fun event and is mirrored in thousands of smaller pancake races around the globe.
