Forget the boat race – watch the GOAT race

The Oxford v Cambridge Boat Race is on this weekend.  But we all know it’s going to be packed and hard to get a good view along the river, right?*

So obviously the answer lies here: forget the boat race – head to Spitalfields City Farm to watch the great GOAT race instead.

Yep – you heard me – the Oxford v Cambridge goat race.

Two goats, both named after said universities.  Before they race around the farm, you can place a sly bet as there’ll be bookies on hand – but if that’s not your thing, just enjoy the goat themed stalls and entertainment.

The event starts at 1pm, but the race gets going at 4:30pm, on March 26th.

As expected, this is a popular event so book your tickets here – they’re only £4 (and the cash goes straight back into the farm).

Spitalfields City Farm is on Weaver St, just off Brick Lane.

Nearest Tube: Aldgate East/Liverpool Street

* Ok – if you do want to go and watch the actual Boat race, Time Out has a handy guide to the best viewing spots here.
