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.

On Thursday night we will be having a sport evening at my house for a group called "The Huw Johnson Club". This is a club for disabled people and this is one of their summer events. If you would like to join us in Essex (know you are in Cambridgeshire this week) you would be very welcome

I am a student at Cambridge University and the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (ADC) are currently rehearsing for their may week production of High Society, in which I am playing the lead, Tracy.
The performance is on 17th-19th June at 2pm in Emmanuel College Fellows Gardens.
Even if you would be unable to make the performance, I thought it would be lovely to photograph some of the rehearsals taking place outside in the gardens on a wonderful summers day.
We would be honoured for you to come and if you would like any more information then please do not hesitate to give me a call.

Reading Phoenix Choir is 40 years old at the beginning of Setpember 2008. We are holding a special dinner at the Calcot Hotel Bath Road Reading to celebrate the event. The choir is renowned throughout England giving about 20 concerts a year, and are very well thought of.
The musical director Norman Morris created the choir and is still very much in charge. He is a remarkable man having given his all for this choir and he also does music with Alziemer people and conducts an Operatic group.
Phoenix is his first love, and we have to date nearly 170 people to attend the dinner which will be an emotional and nostalgic evening.
We would love you to come along and photograph the event, and you may hear some fabulous singing too.
