Oxford vs Cambridge Goat Race The stakes are high as Oxford and Cambridge once again come head-to-head in a nail-biting and highly competitive race. No, this isn't the famous Boat Race but the equally prestigious (okay, maybe not quite) Oxford vs Cambridge Goat Race. Two feisty goats - one named Oxford, the other Cambridge - embark on the annual race, which takes place at Spitalfields City Farm on the same day as the Boat Race. This year, there's entertainment from the Radical Dandy Animal Intelligentsia Salon as well as food and market stalls, live music, beer and cocktail bars, arts and crafts stands and a bookie and sweepstake tent.

 

About Spitalfields City Farm

There's loads to do at the 1.3 acre Spitalfields City Farm. Come and meet Bayleaf the donkey and Bentley the goat - just a few of the cute and cuddly animals dotted around this lush, sprawling plot. Other animal residents include a miniature Shetland pony, Kune-kune pigs, ducks, geese and North Ronaldsay sheep. More about Spitalfields City Farm
