The Oxford v Cambridge Goat Race
Spitalfields City Farm
Sun Apr 6
Time Out says
Posted: Fri Mar 21 2014
In 2014 the Goat Race, now in its sixth year and fast becoming as popular as its Thames-based rival (at least around the Time Out office), will take place on Sunday April 6. The Goat Race sees two goats – one named ‘Oxford’, the other ‘Cambridge’ – take part in a dash around the farm. Since the alternative race precedes the real thing we think it would probably be a kindness to make sure the rowers don’t know the result before they take to the water (so as not to put them off their stroke). The gates open at noon with lots to enjoy on the farm, including bands, booze and other fun, goat-related nonsense. The race takes place at 4pm. There’s an official bookie and sweepstake if you or your nanny fancy a flutter.
