On the same day as a similar sounding event, Sunday the 29th March 2009, we will race two actual goats along a difficult, meandering course lined with cheering spectators.
Spitalfields City Farm is a charity which aims to promote, amongst other things, animal welfare and sustainable farming practices, things which are right down our alley.
So come down, browse Brick Lane market and cheer on the goats, then come for a free caipirinha at the Dragon Bar down on Shoreditch High Street.
2:00pm doors open
Donation £3 to enter. (100% of all money taken goes straight to the farm). Includes a free caipirinha.
