About The Speaker...
After a 40 year career as a scriptwriter and video producer, I am now heavily involved with the Lancaster Grand theatre, the West Lancs Light Railways and in giving talks on topics which I feel keenly about.
About Their Talks...
“Curtain Up!” covers the history of theatre in Britain, in particular the story of the Lancaster Grand built in 1782 – who has performed there, what goes into a production, superstitions and ghosts.
“Scams – Trust No-one” is the result of my training as a Scam Champion by National Trading Standards and covers the many ways crooks target you and what to do about it.
Both talks are illustrated with Powerpoint and last around 1 hour; I will bring my laptop and a projector, but am more than happy to use a projector installed in the venue
For “Curtain Up!” the fee is £45, which goes to the Lancaster Grand’s building fund for the new foyer. “Scams – Trust No-one” is free. I will ask for petrol or train fare if the venue is more than 20 miles from Kendal.
