THE International Pancake Race is back "due to popular demand". 

Salisbury Foodbank, with the support of St. Thomas Church, has announced the annual race will return on Tuesday, February 13, at 11am.

This perennially popular fun community event helps raise awareness of food insecurity and poverty. 

Salisbury Journal:

Maria Stevenson, the manager of Salisbury Foodbank, said: "In 2024 people in our community are going without essentials that many of us take for granted; food on a plate, a warm coat, heating on, a secure roof overhead.

"We have already received interest from a number of people and organisations, but those wanting to get in training to hone their ‘flippin’ skills should reserve their place in the competition without delay."

Entry is free, and more information can be found on the foodbank's website

There will be a  prize for the winner, plus the prestige of winning the Golden Frying Pan for this year.

The event is due to be take place in Salisbury’s High Street but, if the weather looks to be inclement, it will revert to Salisbury Cathedral Cloisters.
