David Allen

Meet the Host, David

With over 10 years of experience, David Allen is a popular public speaker with a fascination for Victorian history, who is the perfect combination of being both hugely knowledgeable and a very skilled and entertaining storyteller.  Funny, light-hearted, but meticulously well researched, his talks are both fun and thought-provoking and are based on hours, days, and weeks of tireless historical research, trawling through the archives and records dating back to the 1800s.

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!
