“A tour de force!” – The Kilted Tommy at Beckenham Festival

“Well researched” – The Kilted Tommy at the Brighton Fringe

“Beautifully performed” – The Kilted Tommy at the Oxford Fringe

“We all really enjoyed your performance and it was great to have you involved in the day. We had lots of lovely praise for your performance from the public ” – The Magna Carta at Beckenham Wordfest

” I particularly loved the chance to sit down in the church and hear the Archer’s Tale – he really brought the experience alive” – The Archers Tale – at Erpingham

“And exceptionally good you are too, Simon Waterfield :)” – Ian Pycroft, Owner – Black Knight Historical (on LinkedIn)

“Simon gave a delightful talk on the construction of our Oriel Windows – an unusual subject and one that I made a point of going to listen to even though I’ve worked at the Castle for a decade! It was incredibly moving to hear a ‘voice from the past’ talking in the present tense about building what we know as ruins. It closed the bridge of time entirely and reminded us that these walls were all put up by skilled craftsmen with families and stories of their own – spine tingling stuff and brilliantly researched.” – Sudeley Castle Event Manager 2016

“Great talk, thanks” – Agincourt Archer – Secretary, LGRA Kent Area

“At last nights Congregational meeting I was asked to write to you to thank you very much for your writing and performance of The Kilted Tommy play on Remembrance Sunday 2016. Everyone who attended was full of praise.” from The Secretary, St Mary’s Church, Menai Bridge.

We represent the Wrabness WI and attended the wonderful talk you gave on Friday. It was extremely entertaining and informative and would be perfect for our group.

On behalf of the Rosewood Ladies Club I would like to thank you for visiting on Wednesday evening and presenting “the Agincourt Archer”. It was a totally unexpected format but very realistically transporting us back in time.

Simon gave us the story of the Stony Stratford kidnapping and successfully conjured up the landlord of the Rose and Crown and the predicament that he found himself in. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening which was a perfect combination of historical fact and storytelling. Mervyn Duffey, Beckenham Storytelling Circle. Nov 2017.

Thank you so much for entertaining us so royally with your talk on being a pilgrim at the time of the black death. I think it was very well received, and I am grateful to you. Hon. Secretary, Friends of Nonsuch. Jan 2018

Hi Simon, The club members enjoyed your talk and found it interesting. It’s good that your costume wasn’t too over-the- top; rather more informative. I will be arranging the new programme at the end of the year and certainly hope to include one of your talks. Many thanks for keeping us entertained and enlightened. Orpington Friendship Club January 2018.

We were delighted to work with Simon (Historic Interpretation) during our ‘Enchanted Museum’ event recently. Simon was friendly, professional and extremely flexible throughout. His portrayal was excellent and his stories were brilliantly told, tailored to the event and created a fantastic atmosphere. Visitor feedback was extremely positive. We would definitely recommend Simon to anyone looking to book a storyteller or historic interpreter to engage audiences and enhance their event, exhibition or programme. Kind regards, Siân Hammerton-Fraser, Visitor Experience Manager, Chiltern Open Air Museum. June 2018

Simon, thank you for your evening with us on Thursday. We thoroughly enjoyed your thoughts and recollections on being a Kilted Tommy during WWI. You make history come alive and the audience feel very much a part of the past. Looking forward to hearing more of your interesting subjects. Marian, Vice Present. Stock Havard WI 2018

Thanks ever so much Simon. You really added to the feel of the day.  Thanks you for doing your research and tying in your piece with our works too! Alison Taylor, Project Manager, Regeneration and Asset Management, London Borough of Lewisham.
