A Brit Different: A Guide to the Eccentric Events and Curious Contests of Britain by Keith Didcock
A Brit Different is a celebration of the weird and wonderful contests that help to make Britain great. The book covers 50 of our most eccentric events: from the relatively mild 'World Poo Sticks Championships', to the downright extreme 'World Stinging Nettle Eating Championships'. Each contest gets an in-depth review, plus all the essential practical info about who takes part, where it's held, how much it costs and whether there's a prize. Beautifully illustrated with hundreds of inspirational colour photographs throughout, this is as good to look at as it is a celebration of our culture.
