Trivial Pursuits

The English at Play

By (author) Orlando Gili


  • Cheese rolling, historical re-enactments and fine tea: a playful photo-study of the many ways the English like to relax
Full Description

It was the UK’s decision to leave the EU that made London-born photographer Orlando Gili question who the English really are. In a nation full of such contradiction and complexity, Gili found some answers in how people choose to spend their leisure time. From horse racing to wartime re-enactments, carnivals to clubs, from ancient and quintessential rituals (medieval village bottle-kicking competitions) to the more modern (Santa pub crawls) this book reveals that which unites a divided nation: the relentless desire for organized fun. Trivial Pursuits is a much needed celebration of the community, culture and tradition of the English.
