All the fun of the fair, English style
When I posted last year on the world's first "divorce fair" in Austria, I asked the question: where Austria leads, will England follow? Well, the answer, it seems, is "yes". As reported in the Telegraph today, Britain's first-ever "divorce fair" is to be held is to be held at Brighton Racecourse on the 11th October. Called the 'Starting Over Show' (S.O.S., geddit?), it is being billed as "the first UK event to help people bounce back from relationship break ups and life crises". There will be an eclectic mix of exhibitors, including mediators, lawyers, financial advisers, a photographer (!), a troupe of pole dancers (!!), and that thing that all divorcing couples need, a mystic housewife healer. I hope visitors will find what they are seeking.
