“Pancake Tuesday” feast welcomes Lent at Millthorpe

“Pancake Tuesday” feast welcomes Lent at Millthorpe

Millthorpe’s famous “Pancake Evening” feast is on again next Tuesday, March 5; and everyone is invited to attend. 

The annual celebration at the St Marks’ Church Hall on Park Street offers delicious, home-made pancakes and a variety of savoury and sweet fillings and tea, coffee and dessert.

This free event starts at 6.30pm; just bring your favourite filling to share at this fun family feast.

Pancake or “Shrove” Tuesday (also variously called “Mardi Gras” and “Carnevale”), is a traditional celebration that marks the start of Lent in the Christian churches.

Communities would make pancakes with their left-over gourmet meats and sweets before the start of the six-week period of self-denial leading up to Easter.

For more information on this wonderful Millthorpe event, call Joy Ritchie on 5310 7818.
