  1. Elizabeth Elizabeth says:

    An exhaustive and well researched account of the Festival of Britain The book goes into great detail about the execution and reaction to the events However it often feels like Conekin is assembling a list of events and details rather than present an argument as to the importance or relevance of the Festival historically and to present day Britain

  2. Norman Norman says:

    A academic work on various topics to do with the famous 1951 Festival The major divisions are time and place as well as a very good introduction
