Goat Race 2018!
Coinciding with the Oxford & Cambridge Boat Race, two goats (one representing Oxford and one representing Cambridge) go head to head - just a stone's throw from the Thames, at Spitalfields City Farm.
Potatoes are versatile little things with a whole heap of qualities locked into their flesh and skins, this is why they have become closely attached to Britain’s culture and still stand as a nationwide favourite today. Love-a-Spud Day is an annual celebration designed to encourage the nation to come together in appreciation for the humble spud.
Come for potato-themed activities, and of course, fantastic organic seed potatoes for this year's burgeoning garden!
