I am a retired Primary School teacher, and my initial specialism was science, however, I have for many years developed a passion for history and over 20 years ago started my business, Live’n History. I have extensive experience of delivering presentations in museums (I have undertaken research for the Wellcome Library and developed several of their video conferencing packages), heritage sites and TV and film work and have developed a series of characters and presentations for interest groups, often on the darker side of life in the past.
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.
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, PROBUS etc.
My standard fee is £90 + travel at 40p per mile and overnight accommodation, if necessary.
ZOOM talks vary in price, please ask.
