London’s July Agenda

The Chap Olympiad – Saturday 12th July


Hosted by the Chap Magazine and Bourne & Hollingsworth, The Chap Olympiad will feature the usual heady blend of gin and tonic, impeccable dress and sporting events such as Umbrella Jousting, Bakewell Battles, Not Playing Tennis and Beach Volleybowler.

The Chap Olympiad, an event designed to reward panache over prowess, requires minimum exertion and aims to separate the chaps from the cads. All guests are invited to participate in each of the Chap Olympic events, as long as they are sporting the most inappropriate outfit they possess.

Throughout the day, there will be vintage clothing and hat stalls and country fair side-shows as well as trademark classic cocktails, afternoon tea and delicious hog roast.

Tickets: £20
