The Chap Olympiad in London
The thought of the London Olympics sends us to sleep, but The Chap Olympiad on the other hand - well, we'll be all over that when it takes place on Saturday 17th July in Bedford Square, London WC1.
Yes, the gentleman's occasional magazine of choice, The Chap, is creating its own Olympics, described as a 'celebration of athletic ineptitude and immaculate trouser creases' for 'the elegant and unathletic' and offering a day of themed sporting events, live music, side shows and refreshments.
All Olympiad guests and participants are encouraged to come in period dress, which in the past has ranged from Victorian explorers to flappers and Second World War RAF pilots. The action begins at 1pm, tickets are £15 and you can find out more at the Chap website
