Flippin’ good fun with Norwich Cathedral pancakes

Traditional Shrove Tuesday pancake races were held in the cloisters at Norwich’s Anglican Cathedral yesterday (February 21) with choristers, clergy and parents all taking part.

With their frying pans in hand, participants had great fun in marking the last day before Lent.

The new Dean of Norwich, the Very Rev Dr Andrew Braddock, who took part in his first pancake race at Norwich Cathedral, said: “It was great to join with the choristers, parents and colleagues for the Cathedral’s annual pancake races.”

The tradition of Pancake Day has a long history and started because Shrove Tuesday was the last opportunity to use up eggs and fats before embarking on the Lenten fast.

Ash Wednesday marks the start of the Lenten journey ahead of Easter, and during this time all are welcome to join in with the Cathedral’s many special services and events.

Among the highlights is Norwich Cathedral Choir and Norwich Baroque’s concert of Bach’s St Matthew Passion on April 1, a rare opportunity to enjoy this musical masterpiece.
