Feature - The Season 2016
The English social season runs between Easter and August 12th, comprising of a number of social and sporting events. The season originated as a way to keep the social elite entertained while Parliament was sitting, and ended just as grouse shooting began. Today tickets are more widely available, and dress codes have been relaxed, but the events are still heavily steeped in tradition.
This season Martin Parr attended the The Epsom Derby, The Cheltenham Gold Cup, The Grand National and Henley Regatta.
