Villagers take care of their own plots of land. There are no allotments, everybody literally has their own land, and all see the importance of keeping the Kingdom green. The Queen would at some point like to set up an official Royal Flower Show but hasn’t got around to it yet thanks to misbehaving fairies (Fresdian and Eileen), witches (Chief Witch), wizards (Brankaresh) and an awkward Council led by the ever awkward L’Evallier. Maybe one day...
Music is developing in the Kingdom. There is a growing awareness of the need to get away from the harp playing image and to prove the Kingdom can produce other styles of music. Guitars and pianos, the idea imported from Earth, are starting to catch on and the Queen has encouraged recitals to be held in the larger settlements. She has even attended a few. The Council aren’t sure they approve, L’Evallier is downright sniffy about it, but the Queen’s favour means the musicians are safe.
Elves have taken to the new music well. Much to everybody’s surprise so have the dwarves and sprites. Most assumed these groups’ contribution to culture was pretty limited. Musical style is mainly classical or light pop. Rock and roll is still several centuries away from coming in here. The Queen is also keen to encourage her subjects to develop their own musical instruments. After all her subjects vary in terms of the number of limbs they have and fine motor skills so musical instruments need to reflect that. Nobody has yet taken up the challenge.
Comedy as such is not known in the Kingdom. The fact the sprites lark about and cause havoc puts the rest of the realm off any form of clowning, physical or verbal. Comedy is something Eileen has taken a long time to get used to on Earth but typically of her she prefers things like P.G. Wodehouse (mainly in written form though she will listen to audio books occasionally), Just a Minute (plays about with words) and to Jenny’s horror, Quote Unquote, but Jenny suspects her mother’s got into this to show off how much reading she has managed to do since coming to Earth which has helped Eileen blend in better. It means Eileen’s cultivated an image of someone who is a Radio 4 upmarket humour fan. Jenny loves I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue (Eileen thinks it rude and rightly!) and a wide range of radio comedy. Radio is just starting in the Kingdom but FNN and Roherum look down their noses at a medium without pictures.
