About Dr Ann Featherstone
I am a retired university lecturer and teacher as well as a writer. I write non-fiction books and articles and I’m a historical novelist with two novels to my name. My particular interest is the 19th century: popular entertainment, theatre, music hall, circus and literature. I have appeared on The One Show, The World’s Oldest Joke (with Sir Michael Grade) and in documentaries about fairs and circuses on BBC4. I’ve been a guest expert on Who Do You Think You Are twice, once with Sheridan Smith and in the new 2016 series – the identity of that celebrity I’m not at liberty to reveal! My talks are informative, well-researched and well-presented. Someone said to me recently, “I could have listened to you for another hour!” Praise indeed.
About her talks...
All my talks are illustrated with good quality Powerpoint slides. Although I can bring my own projector, I will need either a screen or a blank wall.
£50 plus modest travelling expenses if more than 20 miles from my base in Ilkeston, Derbyshire.
I will travel in to the following areas: Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, East Midlands, West Midlands, South Yorkshire as far as South Manchester.
