I am a retired teacher and I have been an historical interpreter for over 25 years. I have extensive experience of delivering presentations in museums, heritage sites and TV and have developed a series of characters and presentations for interest groups.
All my presentations are well researched and resourced so you can be sure that the things I say and do are as historically accurate as I can make them.
I have researched recipes from Medieval times to the 1950s and am fascinated by the relationship between food fashions, changes in society and the wider history of the time. Since becoming a Queen Victoria impersonator I have also developed an interest in the Victorian era and am, at present, writing a book about Baby Farming.
About my Talks...
Most of my talks are about an hour long and many are delivered in costume with museum quality artefacts and/or Powerpoint, some include audience participation, although many can now be delivered in a modified form as ZOOM talks. I welcome questions and am happy to chat after the presentation.
I provide a laptop, data projector and stand but require a screen or white wall.
I have delivered talks to various interest groups; WI, U3A, local history groups, family history groups etc.
My standard fee is £90 + travel at 40p per mile and overnight accommodation, if necessary.
ZOOM talks vary in price, please ask.
