In the Christian calendar, Pancake Day, or Shrove Tuesday, is a traditional feast day which precedes the 40-day fasting period of Lent that lasts until Easter. Pancake Day became a great way to use the foods that were given up for Lent, such as milk, butter and eggs.
Pancake Day takes place between 3 February and 9 March, depending on the date for Easter. In 2020, Pancake Day falls on Tuesday 25 February.
As well as eating pancakes and crepes, there’s a long tradition of Pancake Day races in London which often raise money for charity. The Venue will be raising funds for our homeless outreach project this evening.
