Here We Goat Again! The Oxford Vs Cambridge Goat Race Is Returning To London

Forget the Oxford vs. Cambridge Boat Race and clear your diaries for this goatily prestigious event. Watch as two goats, Cambridge and Oxford, dart around the farm and baaaattle their way to the finish line. Head to Spitalfields City Farm in Bethnal Green to watch the race, dance to live bands, get boozy and take part in all sorts of goat-related madness. Bleat your way through some Goat-e-oke or bust out some lyrics at the Goatry Slam. There’ll even be an official bookie and sweepstake. (Who needs Cheltenham Festival, eh?).

The race will take place on April 2nd at Spitalfields City Farm, E1. Gates to the farm will open at 12pm, and the race will take place at some point between 2pm-5pm (depending on the temperament of the contestants). Get your tickets here.
