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 29th Annual South Downs Way Walk. Winchester to Eastbourne. 6-14 June 2008.
We will foregather in Winchester city at approximately 9am--all 250 of us and proceed to Eastbourne which we hope to reach on 14 June. Some have done it for years, some will be novices(me last year) and there will be dogs and old and young and tales to be told and life stories to be exchanged en route. Truly, a life enriching experience.

On 16/17th August some of the biggest, loudiest and dirtiest Monster Trucks will be at The Hop Farm Family Park, Kent. This year The Hop Farm will welcome a very special guest. Shane Lynch, singer with top band Boyzone and Monster Truck owner, will be meeting fans and showing them his driving skills on Sunday 17th August.

Monster Trucks weigh in at a massive five tonnes each, are 12ft wide, 10ft tall and 18 –20ft long. Each truck has over 1000 bhp and many around 1500 bhp. This is the equivalent of two and a bit Formula One cars!!

Over the weekend these massive beasts will take each other on and race against the clock. Each race involves two nail biting jumps, a spin around a 180-degree hairpin turn and a final leap to glory over the last obstacle to the finish line.

Every September/October sees the Harvest of the Sea Thanksgiving festival, at St Mary at Hill, Lovat Lane, London (known as 'the Billingsgate Church); the church is decorated with fish, nets and other items, and looks both strange and wonderful in its urban context. It's surprisingly popular, too.
