Meet the Host, Baz
After 25 years flying in the RAF as a navigator, Baz found himself running a training company for airline pilots for 25 years after doing a favour for a friend. Supporting his wife's lavender business by becoming the tractor driver, Baz also sells antiques and is trustee of the local museum. A lover of antiques and history and with his RAF training in instruction, Baz loves presenting talks on a variety of history topics.
Preparing for the Event
For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).
We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
What if I can’t make the event?
If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.
Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?
Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy your Mirthy event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.
How do I watch the live event?
Mirthy events are hosted on Zoom, a computer application that allows you to attend online events just by clicking a link. For detailed instructions, please go to our "FAQ" page, which you can find a link to in the nav bar at the top of the page.
