My name is now Elaine Perkins. I was an historic trader for many years. I am now a semi professional actor and have been giving talks for over 20 years to a variety of venues including Historic groups and Battlefield Societies.
I present my talks in costume as Agnes Peterkin, a Medieval Cunning woman, with a range of found and made objects to help people see life through the eyes of ordinary Medieval men and women.
About my presentations...
They are informative, amusing, theatrical and presented in the First Person in Medieval costume. They are “stand alone” talks and so can be presented anywhere.
They last about one hour, plus extra time for questions.
My fees are £50 within ten miles of my home near Chesterfield, Derbyshire. For venues further afield I charge travel expenses. I am available any time and can travel throughout the East Midlands and Yorkshire.
