 Although it might seem like a sporting occasion, the Chap Olympiad is actually is more like a hilarious non-sporting event that celebrates all things ridiculous or ‘daftletic’!

 If you’re a lover of Mexican food, don’t miss this! With irresistible tacos and margaritas, this is the heart of the Hackney Riviera. Next to the canal, it’s perfect for evening drinks, too, and you can even enter the cricket-eating contest if you’re feeling particularly adventurous!
