Events

I present talks and guided walks based on the topics covered in my blog (in particular, the burial grounds of London) – please check back here for details of how to book.  If you are interested in inviting me to speak at your event, please get in touch using the contact form below.

In October 2020 I will once again be taking part in London Month of the Dead, with two guided walks planned: we’ll be returning to West Norwood Cemetery for “In Search of the Gothic Revival,” and will also be taking a walk through Clerkenwell for “Plague and Scandal at the Clerk’s Well.”

Due to Covid-19, numbers on these walks are strictly limited and both walks sold out before I even had time to promote them via Flickering Lamps!  But please watch this space as I am planning to host some virtual graveyard tours this autumn.
