Our clergy and verger team set the pace in the annual pancake races this Shrove Tuesday – together with our choristers and around 300 children.

The participants set off from the front of the cathedral following the toll of the Shrove Tuesday bell at 11am- running up Kirkgate.

The races were organised by Ripon Festivals and the Rotary Club of Ripon Rowels with 21 Engineers cooking up an amazing 400 pancakes!

It was a great turnout despite the wintry weather and we were pleased to welcome media from across the region including ITV Calendar, BBC radio York – who came live from the event – the Yorkshire Post and Stray FM.
