Greats of Great Britain
Happy New Year everyone! 2012 seems like a good year to be British, what with the Olympic Games coming to London and the Queen celebrating her Diamond Jubilee this summer. The Great Exhibition is getting into the patriotic spirit by launching a search for the 'Greats of Great Britain 2012' to identify the best in British society and culture. Go to their website to sign up to nominate a 'Great' or vote for an existing nominee. Categories include people, fictional characters, places, food and drink, so whether you think William Shakespeare is the epitome of British achievement, or a cup of tea is, well, more your cup of tea, then you're sure to find something you can get behind. It's worth a look just to see the variety of things out there that might represent "Britishness"!
