How will you be celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee? Perhaps you’re hosting a street party, going to a BBQ or simply taking to opportunity for extra lie-ins! Not the people of Boughton Monchelsea in Kent – they have something rather exciting involving tights for the double bank holiday.
Their village fete will play host to the World Tights Stretching Championship. That’s right – tights stretching!!!
The object of the competition is for a team of 2 people to stretch a pair of ladies tights over the greatest horizontal distance without them breaking in to two or more pieces.
The founder of the competition, Robin Fuller, explains how the championships began,
“The rather glamorous idea of tights stretching had less glamorous origins.
As a drainage engineer I was called to a blocked sewage pumping station and
watched as a pair of tights was unwound from the pump impeller. They
stretched a very long way and so the idea was born. I have run the event
several times and thought the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Celebrations was the
right occasion to launch it as a World Championship.”
Teams are invited to register for the competition in advance and bring along their own choice of ladies fashion tights or use one of the pairs dontated by Pretty Polly.
The winning team will be awarded the Boughton Monchelsea World Tights Stretching Championship Trophy
So if you’re in the area, why not pop down to the fete & see which tights stretch the furthest! The championships will begin at 2.00pm Monday 4th June 2012

We love Katy Perry, and it seems the feeling is mutual! After wearing the House of Holland Bones Tights last month at Coachella, Katy wore the House of Holland Superstar tights for her appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres show, aired in the U.S last night.
The singer is soon to become star of her very own 3D movie – ‘Part of Me’ which she has been filming since before her split with Russell Brand. Her movie is a front row seat, back stage pass and first hand insight into the world of Katy Perry.
The House of Holland Superstar Tights are now sold out from www.prettypolly.co.uk now, however can still be found in stock at some of our UK and U.S retailers.
