for Annual London Pantomime Horse Race as your favourite British event.

The annual London Pantomime Horse Race in December is one of the capital's most unmissable and unique Christmas charity events.

Over 40 Panto horses (not to mention the odd cow and zebra) will take part in fantastically silly, fun-packed comedy race through the streets of Greenwich, all in the name of raising money for Demelza Children's Hospice.

The streets of Greenwich will be transformed into a course for comical, cantering ponies as they race from Devonport House stopping off at various pubs, before staggering to the finishing line.

Thousands of supporters pack the streets to cheer on their favourite furry gee-gees and the event has attracted celebrity support from the likes of Arthur Smith, Harry Hill, and Bill Bailey.

International media have featured the race, delighting in the deliciously absurd sight of galloping pantomime horses accompanied by crowds of fans in bizarre fancy dress.

Once the horses have passed the winning post, there's a lively post-race Christmas party to enjoy.

So far, the pantomime races have raised thousands for various charities.
