Tickets have gone on sale unusually early for this now annual tradition of racing a pair of goats on the same day as a less interesting boat race on the Thames.
Around 1,200 are expected to watch two goats, one named Oxford and one named Cambridge, tear around the cobbled track of Spitalfields City Farm.
In addition, expect musicians, cocktails, games and a vast array of pun-based performance and entertainment.
The Oxford & Cambridge Goat Race takes place on the afternoon of Sunday 29th March 2020 – so plenty of notice to block it out in your diary. The event is apart from being ridiculously silly fun, also a fund raiser for the city farm.
The ianVisits website has been running now for just over a decade, initially as a news blog, later adding the events listings guide to the offbeat and geeky events in London.
Advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but 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 its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of the ianVisits website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
