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.

The first new theatre of this millenium has opened this year. The Rose of Kingston, Surrey is more spectacular inside than out but it is manned by volunteer ushers and it would be fun to show one of the teams with the building as a backgrouond. There will be matinees on Saturdays June 7th and 14th at 2.30 and also on Thursday, 12th June again at 2.30pm. Call 0208546 6983 if you would consider organising such a shoot.

How about the annual remembrance day service on Great Gable in the Lake district?
Good luck with your project!

Dear Simon - in the week July 7th - 12th we are celebrating Ingleborough, The Hill in the Yorkshire Dales. It is on the western edge of the limestone dales - stunnig grey rock, guided walks up it, bat and moth watches , archaeology, kite flying - you cannot go wrong.

Come and join us and I promise you won't be disappointed - landscape and locals at their best.

How about visiting the Isle of Wight -(almost Hampshire!) to see "The Festival of Croquet" being held at Ryde Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, Playstreet Lane, Ryde. There will be Advanced Association Croquet, a Handicap singles event and an Alternate Stroke Doubles. The Festival runs from Thursday June 5th to Sunday June 8th.
We could arrange to collect you from the Hovercraft or Catamaran which both come to Ryde
