Greetings dear friends and welcome to my London.
I am pleased to accept bookings for corporate and family events. I give serious and humorous talks about the life and times of Charles Dickens, his London and his law; also about my new book, 'The Story Of St Katharine's'. Whether you need a host or after dinner speaker, or for your company do, your wedding or whatever it may be, please get in touch to discuss.
My new book chronicles its fascinating history, from 1148 when the Royal Hospital was founded and thrived until 1825 when it was razed to the ground to make way for the new Telford Docks, where luxury items were traded when London was at the height of its power. The story tells of its eventual decline and heavy bombing during the war years, only to rise again from the ashes, to become the Yacht Haven, leading to the International Marina we cherish and love today. For further details, please follow this link.
