Weekenders too!

  • Sumo

This weekend I had great fun delivering two different characters at two different castles. On Saturday I was at Pontefract Castle being the Colonel Sir Richard Lowther, governor during the first and second sieges of Pontefract castle 1644-1645. The wind blew my tent away but not my hat (I buried under a weight blanket), and I told my many stories about events at the castle during the wars ‘al fresco’.

On Sunday I told an audience ranging from about three to seventy three years in age all about the Great Fire of London in the visitors centre at Sandal Castle.

It was another chance to use my new, improved 1658 map of London, although I had other maps to show also …

My session was mentioned on the Sandal Community Association Facebook page and I was very glad to read the comment how children loved it. The adults told me they enjoyed it too!

I am now taking bookings for the Autumn school term (although I still have bookings coming in for this term too). To see which of my characters you might like to visit your school, please take a look at my page of Characters. I hope to hear from you.
