Iain Aitch never set out to be propositioned by a dog-bitten Pagan at Stonehenge on Midsummer's night, but these things happen when you travel round England looking for those people for whom the phrase 'summer madness' seems to have been invented. From historical re-enactors to giant vegetable shows at village fetes, Wiltshire crop circle fanatics to Cotswolds shin-kickers, Blackpool stag parties to Cornish pasty sailings - Iain Aitch takes all these in his stride as he goes in search of the English at play in the sunshine (well, occasionally). This is a truly unique and hilarious journey to uncover the bizarre array of hobbies, pastimes, fetes, festivals and fights that occupy the English in their time off.
