Forget about the Oxford and Cambridge boat race, this Saturday is all about the Oxford and Cambridge goat race. Now in its fourth year, the annual face off sees two goats go beard to beard at Spitalfields City Farm for the prestige of being the quickest goat in the west. That’s right folks, those hooves will be pounding the cobbles from 4pm as part of what’s probably the kindest of all the goat-based sports (think Buzhashi and goat tossing). Featuring food, bars, live music, goat glitter stickers and even a sweepstake, it’s hoped this year’s race will raise much needed funds for the farm. Didi Mae Hand
