Talks and workshops

Elizabeth has a wide range of talks and charges £75 for an event based around a standard talk. Travel within 20 miles of her home is included, with additional mileage charged at 45p/mile. Bespoke talks can be created on request for an additional fee, commitments allowing.

She can talk about starting out in family, first world war, local and house history and everything from smallpox in Norwich to Rev Lloyd of Happisburgh.

If you prefer a hands-on approach then she can bring a fun session to you, working with your group to tell a story from the sorts of records you can access at your local archive/library and/or online. The charge for a workshop is also £60, plus any additional cost to create resources for participants to keep.

Note from Elizabeth October 2018: "I am enormously flattered that I have been invited to do an unprecedented number of talks this year [2018 through 2190]. Whilst I would love to attend all the events to which I am invited, I should note that I am on maternity leave at the moment and with two very small boys it is not practical for me to attend events that clash with their bedtime. I am still eagerly booking in daytime events (where possible around work and childcare) and will update here when evenings are once again my own!"

Update July 2019: "I have reopened my bookings diary (initially for evening events only) in 2020. I have an extensive back catalogue of talks and a new one on the 'Secrets of Secret Norwich'. Please get in touch if you would like to book me for your 2020 programme and we can discuss availability. I'm looking forward to being back on the road!"


"I would like to thank you officially for your presentation. You did an outstanding job and thank you for your enthusiasm for the information you presented."

"Thank you so much for your wonderful presentation the other evening, the evaluations were unanimous in their enthusiasm, and I found it all fascinating too - very inspirational, so thank you."
