Pick up your pillows and head to the streets for International Pillow Fight Day on Saturday (April 4). From 3pm, Trafalgar Square is becoming home to the grandest and most spectacular battle of the soft furnishings.

The annual event takes place in cities across the world – from Brisbane to Buenos Aires – and there are only a couple of rules: don’t hit anyone with a camera, don’t hit anyone without a pillow and take your pillow home with you.  Still perfecting your pillow fight technique? Try one of these super sassy moves. 

1.  The mace

Swing the cushion around your head to a) build up momentum ready for a mega swipe and b) look threatening.

2. The downwards plough

Aim for the top of the head, like you’re swooshing the reigns of a horse.

3. The shield

Self- explanatory. Only works with a sturdy well-stuffed cushion.

4. The joust 

A combined run-up and sideways jab that’s sure to knock a competitor to the ground.

5. The low-blow

Pull your angriest face and aim for the buttocks.
