I’m David Lewis, a local historian living in Selby, North Yorkshire. A chemist by training, and a teacher by profession, a decade ago I left the lab to concentrate on my love of local history. I’ve spent the last decade investigating the Hidden Heritage of Selby, including working for 3 years on a project largely funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, and setting up a ‘pop-up’ town museum. I’ve successfully addressed audiences ranging from reception classes to scientific symposia and many fascinating local groups in between!
About my talks...
I have 4 separate presentations. The first 3 can be done as stand-alones, but I feel they are much better if there is a laptop and screen available for a PowerPoint. Each talk is scheduled to last around an hour.
For talks 1,2, and the Quiz I charge £40 and modest travel expenses if more than 15 miles from Selby.
Talk 3 is £45 to allow for costs of baking the cakes !
I am happy to travel within a reasonable car/train journey…. to give a rough idea, from Selby, west as far as Leeds, east as far as Hull/Scarboro’, south as far as Doncaster, north as far as Haxby
