Your Ideas

During the course of Simon’s journey around England members of the public were invited to post ideas of events and leisure pursuits that he could photograph, thereby positioning him alongside his fellow countrymen and attempting to involve the ‘English', to a certain degree, in their own representation. The ideas that were posted provide an interesting snapshot of the country in 2008 and work alongside Simon’s photographs. They illustrate what's important to people and explore their own thoughts on notions of Englishness.

It's a bit late in the year for it, but have you taken in a rock festival? Rather than the big corporate events, lots of towns and villages hold smaller scale festivals, featuring local bands and centering on pubs and parks etc. The rituals and characters you find at these places can be fascinating; local old missed-the-boat musos, local radio DJs, the almost famous, appreciative crowds of family members....
Alternatively, "battle of the bands" talent spotting events are a very similar institution and are probably most popular around autumn time...
