About the Speaker...
Katie Bridger is currently a PhD student in the Centre for English Local History at the University of Leicester. She has developed a passion for Leicestershire’s history having lived locally since birth and is involved with a number of heritage projects including the county’s Victoria County History Trust.Katie’s research to date specialises in the social and cultural history of fifteenth and sixteenth century England and this is reflected in her talks. Current and previous interests include influential nobles at the court of Henry VIII; expression of power and identity in the landscape of Leicestershire; church monuments and architecture; terms of endearment, heraldry, linguistics and portraiture.
About her Talks...
Katie’s presentations are lively, engaging and fully-illustrated with PowerPoint. She has her own laptop and projector. A screen or clear wall is her only requirement. Whilst she does have an academic background, Katie feels very strongly about making history accessible for everyone and will therefore cater to a wide range of audiences.
I charge a fixed fee of £50 for a one hour talk which also includes time for questions. I will travel to anywhere within one hour’s travel of LE9 in Leicestershire with mileage costs at 25p per mile beyond a 15 mile radius of my home address (LE9). Train travel may also incur an additional fee. Due to work commitments I am only able to accept evening bookings.
