2011 Race

Polish your horns and belt out those bleets, because London's favourite farmyard fracas is back for a eighth year in 2016. The Goat Race is fast becoming as popular as its Thames-based rival (at least around the Time Out office), and sees two goats – one representing ‘Oxford’, the other ‘Cambridge’ – take part in a dash around the farm.

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 some point between 2pm and 5pm, depending on the mood of the athletes. There’s an official bookie and sweepstake if you or your nanny fancy a flutter. Book tickets well in advance – the animals mustn't get overcrowded and places sell out fast.

Went last year. Was a right laugh. Very very busy though. Goats don't seem distressed either.
