About The Speaker...
I am a researcher, writer and performer of short stories.
Most of those are of a historical nature.
After a brush with Prostate Cancer I have created two talks around that subject, as well as written a book on the subject.
I have been doing this for more than 10 years.
I give my talks to WIs, U3As, Probus, and many other clubs. I perform them in museums, historical re-enactment events all over the country, and in all manner of locations from tents, underneath trees, in historic buildings, to village halls and theatres.
About Their Talks...
They are not lectures.
For the historical talks you meet the subject in period clothes with some appropriate show and tell items who tell their own story in the first person.
I need no equipment at the venue other than perhaps a small table.
If I am required to use a mic I would prefer a hands free mic.
My fees for a historical talk at a live event are £100.
Any venue over 30 miles from home will attract travel expenses. Please contact me to discuss costs, especially if the journey may involve an overnight stay.
My fees for a zoom talk are £75.
My fees for a cancer talk are £75 either live (with a travel cost as above) or zoom. All fees for cancer talks, except travel expenses, are paid directly to the charity Prostate Cancer UK.
