As you should already be aware, Bournemouth 7s Festival 2022 falls on the Queen's Platinum Jubilee Central Weekend, and therefore we thought it was only fitting that we celebrate everything British!

For that reason, this year's Fancy Dress Theme is...[insert royal fanfare]

🇬🇧 The Best of British 🇬🇧

So, as usual, we've pulled together some inspiration for you. Here are 7 Best of British Fancy Dress ideas.

1. A Royal Family Member (...but not that one!)

With around 1,200 years of monarchs, you won't struggle to find a King, Queen, Prince or Princess to choose.

2. An Historical Figure

This nation has a long and eventful history filled with figures of great historical significance: Shakespeare, Wallace, Darwin, Lady Godiva, Churchill... the list is endless!

3. A Swinging 60s Londoner

London was the world capital of the swinging 60s, so why not bring back the fun-loving hedonism

4. A Sporting Hero

This is you opportunity to dress as your World Cup Winning Hero!... or you can be a Welsh, Scottish or Irish sportsperson. 

5. A British Icon

These isles are filled with iconic imagery. Flags, landmarks, vehicles. Look around you and think outside the letterbox.

6. A British Film & TV Character

We're not short of legendary British film and TV characters. Think James Bond, Harry Potter, Italian Job, Only Fools and Horses, and even (technically) Spice Girls. 

7. Never Mind The Punks

Show your rebelliousness with some anti-establishment garbs, piercings and culturally appropriated mohawks! 

We can't wait to see what you come up with, and if you haven't already, get your tickets here.
