What is Pancake Day?

Pancake Day is the last day before Lent and is also known as Shrove Tuesday.  Pancakes are traditionally eaten on this day to use up the eggs and fat which were not eaten during the fasting period.

A Great Pancake Race takes place on Pancake day each year in London on Tower Hill Terrace, in front of the church of All Hallows by the Tower. This is a great fun event and is mirrored in thousands of smaller pancake races around the globe.
