The Chap Olympiad is the best 1940's event in London. I went to the event last year on a whim and this year we bought tickets well in advance so we wouldn't miss out. All the girls are dressed up with victory rolls and 40's dresses while the lads don their bowler hats and 3 piece suits. There are men in Army uniforms looking quite dashing while swing dancers perform between matches of umbrella jousting and cucumber sandwich throwing contests. This year the weather was against us and the turnout wasn't as large as last year but the day was still fabulous!
