London's most dapper and least energetic sporting event is back for its eleventh year in 2015. Organised by The Chap Magazine and Bourne and Hollingsworth (who specialise in period bars and events), the eccentric festival sees participants in stylish outfits compete in events such as breadbasket ball, passing the port, umbrella jousting, bakewell battles, and tug-of-hair. As well as the terribly silly shows of sporting ineptitude, the event features vintage clothes stalls, a Victorian strongman and country fair sideshows. Guests in plimsolls, denim, lycra, baseball caps or other active wear are considered uncouth and will not be admitted. Book in advance online.
