Saturday 8th June 2019

This year The Chap celebrates 20 years of publication, with the 100th edition published on 17th May 2019. To mark this pair of highly significant milestones, we are hosting a spectacular party on Saturday 8th June in London, in collaboration with Bourne & Hollingsworth at The Blitz Party D-Day Special.

Long-established WWII-themed shindig The Blitz Party, hosted by Chap Olympiad partners Bourne & Hollingsworth, will provide an entire room specially for Chaps and Chapettes to celebrate with us. This particular Blitz Party occurs on the nearest Saturday to D-Day, making it an even more special occasion. While other guests cavort to live swing bands and DJs in the event’s many rooms, those attending the Chap Party will have their own personal bar, serving classic cocktails, Champagnes and spirits, washed down with hearty homemade snacks from the mess stall. 

Disc-jockeying and other entertainment will come from the Chap’s roster of quirky entertainers, adding to an already impressive repertoire drumming up a storm in the rest of the venue. Chaps will have full access to the whole event, with their own wristbands allowing exclusive access to the Chap Room. 

The party takes place at the Vaults in London, a warren of underground tunnels and arches transformed into a wartime air-raid shelter with a swing dance hall, live music stage and bunkers complete with sandbags, searchlights, blackout curtains, oil lamps and military bunk beds.

The evening will host the UK’s finest live swing bands and performers; Swing Patrol will be leading a dance class from 7pm, and non-rationed wartime snacks will be provided in the Mess Hall, along with a bar menu that includes a special Chap 20th Anniversary cocktail.

Join us from 8pm-2am on Saturday 8th June to celebrate the momentous occasion of The Chap’s 20th anniversary.

Tickets are £10 which include a special Chap cocktail on arrival.
