House of Lords v House of Commons Tug of War They managed to raise over 141,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support last year and this summer they're going at it again - the annual House of Lords vs House of Commons Tug of War is back for a 28th year. The typically English setting of Westminster College Gardens plays host to this light-hearted skirmish between these two houses of Parliament as they battle it out to raise money for the Macmillan cancer support charity. Celebrity teams, big businesses and teams from the British Army and the Royal Air Force also take part in the competition which draws a crowd of over 1,000 spectators. With champagne reception, supper and witty repertoire from BBC2's Jeremy Vine as commentator, this is a wonderfully eccentric English event.
