Wimborne Minster Pancake Race

When? 25 February 2020
Where? Wimborne

  • Wimborne Minster Pancake Race

The Wimborne Minster Pancake Race is all set to run again this year. It will take place on Shrove Tuesday 25th February.

The venue is, as always, outside the main north porch entrance to the Minster and the first race will commence at 11.00am as the Pancake Bell is tolled. Competitors will be required to run round the Minster tossing their pancakes at the four corners of the church.

All competitors should report to the north porch by 10.30am to enrol, complete with frying pan and ready cooked pancake.
Anyone can enter, male or female, young or old, individuals, schools, groups and organisations. All are most welcome.

So come on, get yourself into training for the big day and pick up an entry form from the Minster or the Parish Office in Church House, (next to the Minster) or just turn up in the day and have some fun!
