Pancakes at Cathedral
Choristers have been busy practising for the traditional pancake race at Ely Cathedral in Cambridgeshire.

The girls, dressed in their red cassocks, perfected their pancake tossing skills for the annual event in the 12th Century Cathedral.

Each year around 20 choristers from the boys’ and girls’ choirs race down the nave after Evensong to mark Shrove Tuesday.

It is the third longest nave in the UK, measuring 75 metres.

“Choristers have taken part in a pancake race at the cathedral for as long as anyone can remember,” said Lesley Ann Thompson, a spokeswoman for Ely Cathedral. “It marks the start of Lent which is a period of austerity.”
