The Chap Olympiad

Britain's most eccentric garden party

The Chap Olympiad is Britain’s most eccentric garden party, welcoming only the elegant and the unathletic to this world famous “celebration of sporting ineptitude and immaculate trouser creases”. Since its humble beginnings somewhere in the corner of a field in England (which we can’t reveal for legal reasons), the Chap Olympiad has provided track, field and bar events for the floppy of hair, the rakish of trilby and the elegant of trouser. The Chap Olympiad is a celebration of Britain’s sporting ineptitude: sensational cravats take precedence over sweaty lycra; more points are awarded for maintaining immaculate trouser creases than crossing the finishing line. Taking place in a leafy central London square, The Chap Olympics is a gathering place for the most eccentrically dressed sportsmen and sportswomen of the nation. DRESS CODE: elegant finery, military wear, formal wear, dandy wear. No sportswear please except cricket whites and absolutely no denim. The Chap Olympiad requests that all patrons refrain from bringing alcohol to the event. Saturday 15th July 2017 from 12pm to dusk. Please note that children of 10 years or more must have a general admission ticket. DRESS CODE: elegant finery, military wear, formal wear, dandy wear.
