What a week in Sheffield after 5pm! As well as some fantastic things happening throughout the week, it’s also both Valentine’s Day and Pancake Day, or Shrove Tuesday, on 13 February.
Traditionally, Shrove Tuesday is a day for feasting before Lent – the 40 days leading up to Easter – begins on Ash Wednesday. As Lent is a time where Christians choose to give something up, the day before it begins is seen as one last time to indulge. Pancakes have been eaten on Shrove Tuesday since the 16th century, and the day is more widely known as Pancake Day, today.
In Sheffield, there are plenty of places to have a flippin’ good time on Pancake Day. We’ve rounded up a few, if we’ve missed your favourite, let us know using #SheffAfter5.
