The Royal Horticultural Society's achievements in its chosen field have been well documented. Less well known are the many other events it has hosted since its first hall opened in 1904. This handsome book sets the record straight. Lavishly illustrated with colour photographs, posters and other memorabilia, it documents some 7,000 events that represent a century of social history, from the Cookery and Food Exhibition in 1906 through the Coronation Cat Show of 1953 to the Labour Party centenary in 2000.
