The trainee choristers had to celebrate and learn about Shrove Tuesday a week early as they will be on half-term on pancake day next week. Every year the choristers make pancakes to learn about the meaning of Shrove Tuesday, which is traditionally the day that all fats and flesh are eaten up to prepare for the forty days fast of Lent.
