Days out - Oxford and Cambridge Goat Race

Forget the historical rivalry taking place on the Thames, we’re not kidding when we tell you that the only race to watch this weekend is the goat race at Willows! Two crews of goats and jockeys will be donning either a light or dark blue coat and racing around the sheep racing track. Oarsome.

Willows Activity Farm, Coursers Road, London Colney, St Albans, April 6. Details: 0870 129 9718,
