I run a quarterly event called Stoke Newington History Talks where I’m joined by two different speakers each time. I’m glad to say the number of people attending has been growing steadily since the first event in November 2016. I’m always happy to speak at events such as user group meetings, research groups, festivals etc. so do get in touch if you would like to talk about a potential speaking engagement.

Online talk: 20.10.2020 – A Glimpse into Hackney Archives’ photos of Stoke Newington’


I look forward to give a free online talk on Oct 20th 7pm titled ‘A Glimpse into Hackney Archives’ photos of Stoke Newington’. It’s one of my favourite talks where I present old photos of Stoke Newington from the Hackney Archives. There’s a good mix of photos that show how Stoke Newington has changed over the years. At the time of writing these lines nearly 400(!) tickets have been booked, which is absolutely incredible. Book your ticket here.
