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.

I know its a little way off but every year, just before christmas in Stratford on Avon, they have a small service held in the gardens at the new place, one of shakespeares houses, where they turn on the lights on a christmas tree. there is a choir (from St James' Alveston) and a brass band, and people come and sing carols. its done at dusk, and is in aid of The Shakespeare Hospice. Its one of the highlights of the christmas season for me, really nice and festive.

If you get an opportunity try the open water, water polo tournament, 50 plus teams at the National Water Sports Centre, Nottingham. Hosted by South Derbyshire Water Polo Club, it's an interesting gathering of people of all ages, shapes and sizes....
