Pancake Day Race 2022, Andrew Williamson

He’s only gone and flippin’ won it.

Pancake day and time for Director Andrew Williamson to work on his latest innovation. We weren’t sure how he could better the 2019 “homemade human wind turbine”, but this year he topped them all with his fully functional water butt, complete with tap.

Dressed in their full regalia, the members of the related Liveries of London compete in this pancake-flipping race. The Lords Mayor Inter-Livery Pancake event employs the skills of a variety of liveries: Clockmakers time it, Gunmakers fire the starting pistol, Glovers provide the white gloves worn by racers, Fruiterers provide lemons, Cutlers provide the forks and RG Jones provide the technical support.

Andrew dazzled the crowd in a jade green water butt half-length complete with sustainable perennially chic cookware accessories.

“It’s a really fun event to raise money for charity.” explains Andrew “RG Jones have been lucky enough to work at events at the City of London, Guildhall for decades and it’s extraordinary to be on the other side of the fence. I spend a few weeks locked away in my shed to pull this costume together, I’m made up that we won. Think it’s time I stepped backstage again now”.
