The Chap Olympiad & Amwell Street Fête

Taking place in a beautiful Georgian square in central London, The Chap Olympiad is a delightful day of themed sporting events, live music, sideshows and refreshments.

The Olympiad has become Britain's most eccentric sportsday, attracting Londoners to this now famous celebration of athletic ineptitude and immaculate trouser creases.

Hosted by The Chap magazine (a monthly journal filled with articles on tweed, hat doffing and martinis) and Bourne & Hollingsworth, the Olympiad is an eye-catching spectacle, full of oddball elegance and quirky panache.

All guests are invited to come in period dress. We have some amazing original 40s dresses that would be perfect for the look - our Romilly outfit or summery Justine frock need no accessorizing and allow enough movement for the Cucumber Sandwich Discus, one of the event highlights.

For inspiration, check out some photos and a video of last year's event. If you're the mood for more retro frolics this weekend then Amwell Street is hosting a swing party as part of their annual 'village fête'. There will be stalls for cakes and vintage fayre, bingo, a tug-of-war, a dog show, a 1940s wedding parade, and a period fancy dress competition all played out to live music.
