Family fun and sporting event


Established in 2008, with 10 hotels playing football in Hyde Park with jumpers for goalposts and scores on a whiteboard we started something that we had no idea would turn into a major event for hospitality workers across London.

The Dorchester Hotel become the first Champions of the Hotel & Catering Challenge Cup Over and over the next nine years the event grew every year raising money for Charities within the industry, we have worked with Springboard, Hospitality Action, House of St Barnabus and the Janus Foundation.

We included live music to entertain the friends and colleagues, we added free face painting and bouncy castles to entertain the families. For several years we have used Kings House School sports ground in Chiswick and Big Bus Tours have Kindly transferred players from Hammersmith tube station to the ground.

This year is our 10th Anniversary! And we are planning the biggest party ever.  You'll find free live music all day, kids entertainers, food stalls and bars, not to mention wall-to-wall sports

To celebrate our 10th anniversary we have added a few extra surprises to keep you entertained.

Check out the lineup and register for your tickets.
