Ticket price

Journalist and author Matthew Engel takes an original and very funny look at the historic counties of England – in his view the most confused and complicated country in the world. Engel finds each county a unique slice of a nation that has not lost its diversity, from the well-dressers of Derbyshire to the goddess-worshippers of Somerset, hedonistic Essex and the Hindus and huntsmen of Leicestershire.

Engel is a journalist and author who writes for the FT. He is well known for his 12-year spell as editor of Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack, and his previous books include Eleven Minutes Late: A Train Journey to the Soul of Britain and Extracts from the Red Notebooks.
