Talks and speaking events

Discover England's incredible history with our specialist talks

Listen to fascinating online or village hall talks on a variety of topics

Are you the person tasked with producing your group’s annual programme of speakers and events? Are you on the lookout for interesting topics that will stimulate your members and give them an informative and enjoyable meeting?

I have put together a few very engaging, interesting and different talks. One of those may be just the thing you are looking for. Or if not, give me a call anyway and see what else I might be able to offer you.

If you are organising virtual meetings for your members, I’m also able to give most of these talks online, using Zoom.

Current talks and topics:

  • The history of the Kennet and Avon Canal
  • Portsmouth and Southampton – maritime contrast
  • The Isle of Wight – England in miniature
  • Climbing Kilimanjaro
  • A long walk across England – a coast to coast journey
  • The Thankful Villages of the Great War
  • Anniversaries of 2021
  • The Royal Wives of Windsor
  • An heir and a spare
  • Tales of a Blue Badge Tourist Guide

What’s included in a talk?

All of my talks come from my experience as one of the top certified and accredited tour guides in Britain.

My talks cover a range of topics from maritime, rural England, walking journeys, historical themes and even a war topic: the Thankful Villages of the Great War.

These are only a few examples, so it would be wonderful to speak to you about your theme and a suitable talk!

New for 2020 - talks online via Zoom

The wonders of technology. Graham is now able to give most of his talks online, using the Zoom video meeting platform.

If you are holding your meetings virtually, you can hear exactly the same story as you would in a live talk.

Graham will even help your organiser set up the appropriate links.  Please get in touch with us to discuss further.

Graham has been a Blue Badge guide on quite a few of our specialist river trips on the Thames. He is a very informative guide and professional and it is a pleasure to work with him
