Anyone who's anyone simply has to be at Goodwood, darling. And Ascot, Cowes, Henley, Glyndbourne, the Chelsea Flower Show and all the other social and sporting fixtures of 'The Season'. Determined to penetrate the mysteries of this very English phenomenon, Sophie Campbell maxed out her credit card, squeezed into a diaphanous frock and sallied forth. Her richly comic account exposes an arcane, exclusive ritual dating back to Stuart times and focused on fashion, food, art - and the marriage market.
