Arts and cultural events

Rejoice in English culture at one of the many shows and fairs held throughout the year. Think of them as giant garden parties featuring enthusiasts, displays, and excellent food and drink stalls. Classic car fairs bring together vintage and performance motors, with demonstrations from world-class and often famous professionals. The biggest also include motorbikes and beautiful vintage aeroplanes. During the summer choose from an abundance of cultural events and literary festivals. Books come to life as novelists and poets read from their latest works. Head to a vintage festival or antique fair to revel in the music, fashion, film, art and design that shaped the 20th century.
