Fast becoming an institution in its own right, the annual Oxford & Cambridge Goat Race takes place on the same day as its more famous aquarian cousin on the Thames, and unsurprisingly, involves goats, racing.

Whereas anyone can watch the boats by bagging a spot on the riverside, the goat race takes place at Spitalfields City Farm, where space is more restricted, and hence, tickets are sold.

Apart from crowd control, the tickets also fund-raise for the city farm, which does do rather more than race goats once a year.
