I hope there will be a volume 2,
This review is from: A Brit Different: A Guide to the Eccentric Events and Curious Contests of Britain (Paperback)
Coming from a country famous for its annual wife carrying, mosquito swatting and wellie throwing events to name but a few, I was pleasantly surprised to find so many interesting and crazy events in Britain too. I bought one book for myself (as a good read, as well as for reference next time I need to find a custard pie throwing or stinging nettle eating or maybe a riveting snail racing event to go to) as well as a few extra copies to use as prezzies as and when needed. With fantastic photography and witty writing this book tells me everything I need to know when planning my next 'brit different' weekend - no need to go back home then, I guess...
