The Oxford and Cambridge Goat Race is hosted on Sunday 31st March 2013 at the Spitalfields City Farm. Coinciding with the famous and historic boat race along the Thames, the Oxford and Cambridge Goat Race sees two goats compete for glory.
The goat race sees one goat called Oxford and one called Cambridge trot along to the cheers of the crowd. All proceeds from the event will go to help the farm continue its programme of education, rare breeds management, the promotion of best farming practice and animal welfare for the benefit of the Tower Hamlets community.
The Goat Race also includes a variety of family friendly fun. There's live music, locally brewed beer, coffee, a treehouse bar, market stalls and all manner of attractions to keep everyone entertained.
Along with the annual Oxford and Cambridge Goat Race, Spitalfields City Farm has a busy programme of events running throughout the year for children, families and all those who want to reconnect with nature in the heart of London. From after school clubs to pick and cook sessions, the farm welcomes over 18,000 visitors a year in one of the most densely populated and deprived wards of Tower Hamlets.
