The 2018 London Pantomime Horse Race will this year introduce a separate race, that will equally be as daft as the annual Panto Horse Race but a lot, lot slower.

Teams of Sloths, with a Tortoise as their race-pacemaker, will be ‘racing’ in the streets of Greenwich. from Devonport House to Royal Hill.  It’s a race & a crawl, so if you like your races just that bit slower, you are in for a super treat,

Sign up.  Places are VERY Limited. 4 teams only (2 sloths per team). For further details, email [email protected] to reserve your team place.
