Get your tweeds out and compete in The Chap Olympiad

Running annually from 2005, The Chap Olympiad has become Britain’s most eccentric sporting event attracting vintage-loving Londoners to this now famous ‘celebration of athletic ineptitude and immaculate trouser creases’. Welcoming only the elegant and unathletic, The Chap Olympiad is a delightful day of themed sporting events, live music, side shows and refreshments.

All Olympiad guests and participants are encouraged to come in period dress and fully immerse themselves in the event’s old-fashioned activities and charming entertainment. With a sporting line-up including butler baiting, umbrella jousting and ironing board surfing on the cards, followed by classical performances from quartets, piano players and cabaret singers, guests can enjoy an all-day event of gentlemanly competition.
