Recreation And Entertainment

The Olympic games are the greatest games of all times. They started off in 1860s and last till today. The Olympic games are quite historic games and are always talked about when it comes to the history of entertainment and recreation. When the industrial revolution hit the Britain in 1700s, it was then that the entertainment industry flourished. This industry helped in creating the modern factory designs. Machines were replaced by the human labor and people got more spare time to do leisure activities. This activity of getting leisure time was only popular in the cities. Village people had the same old routine. During the late 1700s, there were many leisure activities like fares and festivals arranged in the villages. They gave the locals a chance to relax themselves.
