Olympiad Games for the Unathletic
SAVE THE DATE – the Chap Olympiad is back in town and you’re in for a treat! You can expect a day‐long celebration of English eccentricity to the backdrop of a traditional summer garden party. Taking place on Saturday 16th July, Britain’s best dressed will once again descend on Bedford Square Gardens for a very British party, complete with Olympiad games for the unathletic, live music, and Bourne & Hollingsworth’s trademark cocktails.
As Britain readies itself for a summer of sporting triumph at the Rio Olympics, The Chap Olympiad offers a welcome relief for those who were never picked for the school sports team due to being too weedy, and for whom a well-‐pressed suit is deemed close to godliness.
True to the Chap style, the Olympiad games are designed to reward panache rather than sporting prowess, and require the minimum of physical exertion. Featuring such events as the Corby Trouser Press Challenge (an alternative assault course), Not Playing Tennis (the laziest ever game of tennis), and the eagerly observed Umbrella Jousting (as you might expect), The Chap Olympiad has become a London institution and a must-see event for anyone visiting London.
DRESS CODE: elegant finery, military wear, formal wear, dandy wear. No sportswear except cricket whites and absolutely no denim.
