I am based in Greater Manchester, south of the city and I am no stranger to public performance having for over 50 years played major roles in musical and drama productions in addition to some public speaking. At school I found history a bore perhaps due to the wartime “by-rote” teaching methods – but 25 years spent in researching my family history as well as four years as a National Trust Room Steward at Lyme Park, Cheshire has stimulated my perception of history in general.
About my talk...
This is a PowerPoint presentation and I supply all equipment, though use of an in-house screen is much appreciated.
The talk lasts for approx 45/50 minutes but it can be extended if required. It deals with the events surrounding and the aftermath of the notorious national scandal known as the ‘1826 Shrigley abduction’ and I have assembled additional relevant local and other material not collected elsewhere.
£40 for a typical 45 minute talk with slides. There would be no additional travel cost to venues within 10 miles of my base. I can provide my own projector and, if necessary , a small 4ft diagonal screen.
