About my Charles Dickens Talks and event hosting. 
Also featuring my new book, The Story Of St Katharine's.

Charles Dickens London

let's get started


Greetings dear friends. 
Welcome to my London. I give serious and humorous talks and lectures about the life and times of Charles Dickens and his London. These talks include after dinner speaking, hosting corporate and social events, also school visits and charity fund raising, usually in costume.  

Thank you for all the kind comments about my part in the recent piece about Charles Dickens And Great Ormond Hospital for the BBC. To watch the BBC video click here.

Then in this video, I talk about  Christmas Carol. Again, it was filmed at the Dickens Museum.
