London's most dapper and least energetic sporting event is back for its twelfth year in 2017. Organised by The Chap Magazine and Bourne and Hollingsworth (who specialise in period bars and events), the eccentric festival sees participants in dandy outfits compete in events that require minimum physical exertion. You'll need a thick hide for the Riding Crop Rumpus, where six contestants will have to battle two fetishists for the right to have their arses whipped by a riding crop.
As well as the terribly silly shows of sporting ineptitude, the event features food stalls, live music and cocktails to wet your curled moustache. Guests in plimsolls, denim, lycra, baseball caps or other active wear are considered uncouth and will not be admitted. Book in advance via the event page.
