What Engaging Traditional British Activities Are There?
We receive many foreign, often Chinese, exchange students and we are seeking to run a few British activities for the students. We are not entirely sure what activities we should run. We have come up with morris dancing, another group of students are running sessions on their culture (nigerian and indian) and I am running a textiles sessions.

Shouting at foreigners so they understand us.
Getting drunk and having a fight because we lost at football.
Getting drunk and having a fight because we won at football.
Getting drunk and having a fight because we drew at football.
Going for a curry after getting drunk and asking for popadoms in a silly mock, slightly racist Indian accent
All heading to the same place ona bank holiday and then moaning about the crowds and traffic jams
Going on holiday to Spain and head straight to an English bar
Going on holiday to Spain and complain about the heat
Going to Spain on holiday and complain about foreign muck food not like a good curry or spag bol.
Watching endless cookery shows on Tv, then order a takeaway.
But never ever Morris dancing.

Somewhat age restriction limited, but Britain does have a very strong traditional culture of drinking beer, with top quality brews that include (but not limited to):
- Theakston Old Peculier
- Wychwood Hob Goblin
- Wychwood Black Wych
- Marston's Pedigree
- Fuller's London Pride
- Adnam's Broadside
- Morland Old Speckled Hen
- Wainwright Golden Beer
- Bishop's Finger
- Spitfire Ale
So,. if age isn't an issue, a beer sampler night could be an option.
The beer drinking is often accompanied by playing Darts... so Darts night also maybe an option (doubles or 501).
Possibly also accompanied by a buffet of suitable traditional british food staples, such as:
- mini sausage rolls
- salted crisps
- salt & vinegar crisps
- cheese & onion crisps
- cream crackers with assorted toppings (e.g. potted beef, potted crab, etc)
- ham & mustard sandwiches
- egg & cress sandwiches
- cheese selection (cheddar, double gloucester, red leicester, wensleydale)
- pickled onions
- pickled beetroot
- jaffa cakes
- victoria sponge cake slices
- tunnock's chocolate/marshmallow teacakes
- tunnock's chocolate wafer biscuits
- custard cream biscuits
- bourbon cream biscuits
- malted milk biscuits
- ginger nut biscuits

You could do something around food - baking for example, or cheese making / tasting.

A football or rugby match followed by a pub crawl.
We like our hobbies which are many and various.
As language is important, a book club, a choir, a pub quiz night etc.

Long walks in the countryside seems to be a particularly popular thing in the UK. Take them to a cricket match, or rugby. If they're old enough, take them to a pub.

Christmas crackers for one. Baking cakes from scratch is another. Putting candied fruits in a lot of baked goods. Taking a bath rather than a shower. Buying a clothes drier for prestige, then using a clothesline "because the drier is too expensive to run".
