2018, the year so far!

by admin on 28 May 2018

The year has started off very well considering.

The Agincourt Archer has had three evening outings, as had the Weymouth Pilgrim and the Kilted Tommy.

One further Weymouth Pilgrim and 6 more Kilted Tommy evening performances are booked so far

I have written and performed a new Templar story about the carpenter who built one of the Templar Barns at Crossing Temple, and performed it in the barn at the International Living History show. The Kilted Tommy also made an appearance there.

 

I have performed another new story St George and the Dragon for the Gillingham Scouts, an audience of over 500!

I have written and performed stories of Pegasus and Blepharon, and about the Borrowers and Enchanted castles at the Chiltern Open Air museum.

I have written a story of pagans, Christians and war in C7 Mercia and performed it at the Thoresby Historical Bazaar weekend.

I appeared as Mr Charles Dickens at the Rochester Dickens Festival. Under the shadow of the impressive Keep I told tales of my early life and explained where my stories and characters came from. The audiences, young and old were very appreciative.

Being 2018 and the 100th Anniversary of the Armistice, the Kilted Tommy is very popular.
I have 6 further evening performances booked.
He will also be visiting Batemans again for their WW1 weekend where he will be exploring in more detail the life and death of Jack Kipling and meeting Kipling himself after the war to relay news of his son.
Most excitingly he will also be visiting Highclere House for the Heroes weekend. Here a wounded Kilted Tommy talks about being gassed at the same time as an officer and being sent home. The story explores his treatment and his being sent to Highclere House where the officer was sent and describing the somewhat different treatment his officer had in somewhat differing circumstances.

 

 

There are more engagements and new stories for later on in the year.
Keep looking for further updates!
