………………AND NOW FOR SOMETHING ENTIRELY DIFFERENT
Why not try a new approach? We offer BOGOF. Yes, buy one get one free! We’re no more expensive than a single speaker, but you get two of us for the same reasonable price. Most of our presentations are in the Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch areas, but if you’re anywhere from Wareham to Salisbury, across the New Forest to Lyndhurst, give us a call. If you need someone at comparatively short notice, we’ll do our best to help out.
Jacqueline is a retired English Teacher who was Head of Drama at a local school, whilst Brian enjoyed many years in Amateur Dramatics, with a career including property management and small theatre management before retirement.
We try to keep the audience awake (snoring is so off-putting), so as well as two different voices, we pop in quirky facts and a bit of humour. For example, did you know who the worst executioner was in the 1600’s, or how Augustus John’s supper was very different from yours, why Dylan Thomas took the wrong route after his death or how the Duke of Monmouth could have saved himself 6 guineas? Why do we bring an auctioneer’s gavel to one of our presentations? (Sorry, you’ll have to book us to find out).
About our Talks...
We give thoroughly researched PowerPoint presentations, (scroll down to see details of each talk) usually about an hour long although we can stop for a break if you wish. We have our own screen, projector, PC, and even a small table on which to mount the projector if needed.
Our fee is £60 within the areas mentioned above. You provide the venue, a power socket, a couple of chairs and an audience and leave the rest to us.
PLEASE NOTE: For 2023 dates the fee will be £70 for any bookings made after 30 June 2022
