The Drill House played host to Pancake Day fun and games with an event called Fat Tuesday. As well as making pancakes, children could also take part in Total Crepe, a crazy pancake obstacle course.

More than 60 people attended with children enjoying a chance to make their own pancakes and taking part in the obstacle course, which was created by artists Lucy Enskat and Matthew Harrison.
