Rather than watching rowers in the distance on the Thames, watch two apty named goats race around the Spitalfields city farm for their own goaty fame and glory.

The fun event will see a couple of pygmy goats, one for each University lock horns as they race around a prepared track within the farm.

Tickets to attend the annual Goat Race go on sale on Saturday (3rd March) at 9am – prices have not been announced yet, and booking details will be announced here.

Rather like that less important boating thing, the Goat Race takes place on the afternoon of Saturday 24th March.

Being goats, the time of the race is down to how they feel on the day, but it usually takes place around mid-afternoon, although the farm opens for pre-race fun at lunchtime.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
