Lichfield’s exciting Pancake Races are set to take place on Tuesday 28 February, and spectators can expect to see all the usual races including Men’s, Women’s, Mascots and under 10’s. Participants will be on their marks as usual in Bore Street from 12 noon.

The races will be followed by the traditional opening of the Shrovetide Fair on the Market Square by the Civic party, supported by Town Crier Ken Knowles who will give a shout to announce the occasion.

Last year an important change to the registration process was introduced to enable better and more efficient management of runners on the day. All entrants must now pre- register anytime up to 12 Noon on Monday 27 February. No registrations will be accepted after that time.

For the children's race the minimum age is six and the maximum age is 10.
