The English Year

£9.99

Product description

A lavishly illustrated, month-by-month, day-by-day guide to all the customs and festivals of England, from the national celebrations to herald New Year down to small local traditions such as the Minehead Hobby Horse or Duck Racing in Oxfordshire. If you want to know where you can get free bread and beer on any day of the year, if you want to know where Mayday comes from or why you should protect yourself on Mischief Night, or why the English go in for all kinds of arcane celebrations but can't be bothered with St George's Day, this is the book for you.
With an attractively illustrated dust jacket, the book appears brand new.
