The Traditional Season
The traditional Season, with its trappings of debutantes, Court presentations, balls and parties, has all but disappeared. What remains, however, is a well-loved round of events that are still regarded as highlights of the British social calendar - from Royal Ascot and Wimbledon to Henley Royal Regatta and Cowes Week.
The lingering vestiges of the historical Season can still be seen in certain social conventions, especially those associated with dress codes, but most people revel in the opportunity to dress up, and enjoy the undoubted glamour of these traditional events.
