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.
