History

London’s wackiest ‘Horse’ Race event, began in 2010, as a small quirky annual community charity event in Central Greenwich.  Since then it’s popularity, has continued to soar. The Free public Xmas event, attracts hundreds of spectators to Central Greenwich each year, along with race entrants, who travel from across the UK and Europe, to take part. It’s increasing popularity, quirkiness,  originality and sheer silliness has also received widespread support from  National and International TV / Media, who regularly cover the event on the day.

In 2016, The London Pantomime Horse Race received widespread international TV/media coverage from the UK,  USA, China, France,  Germany, Russia, Italy, Portugal, Columbia, Pakistan, & Australia, to name a few, with interest steadily growing globally each year.
