The Chap Olympiad 7th and 8th July, London
Taking place in the Georgian beauty of Bedford Square, The Chap Olympiad weekend is a delightful celebration of honest sporting endeavours, live music, side shows and refreshments. One of London's most eccentric sporting events, it includes umbrella jousting, ironing board surfing, martini mixing and the famous pipeathalon which rewards panache as much as sporting prowess.
It's not just taking part - it's taking part with style.
You Me Bum Bum Train
June 21st to August 26th- London
This theatre is one where you don't just witness a show, you are the show. The idea that you are the only 'real' audience member, in that the rest of the crowd are cast members of this theatre, who then lead the sole audience member through a series of wacky and unexpected scenarios, including; Boxing matches (complete with fans and opponents), but only after training for an olympic swimming routine and interviewing real celebrities on your very own talk show. Truly a once in a lifetime opportunity has unfortunately sold out, but with the boundaries between spectator and performer so intimate, it's hardly a big deal as they are looking to hire
