Folklore: Folk Tales and Funny Folk

Talks - General Interest

Event Description


In this witty and very humorous talk, Geoff takes a sideways look at some of the laws, old sayings, tales, and people that make our country the often madly wonderful place it is today. Just what end of a boiled egg was it illegal to break in the reign of Edward VI? What do you use a cow, a pair of breeches, and a stout cudgel for on a Friday? How did Chesterfield church get its crooked spire? The answers to these and many other vital questions are answered in this fast-paced, engaging talk. Your life will be changed!

Geoff Harris

Meet The Speaker, Geoff


Geoff Harris started working as a teacher and taught in a variety of secondary schools all over the UK for ten tears before giving it all up and becoming a clown. Really, that is what he did. The clowning led onto other performance areas and he has been seen on a variety of stages and screens ever since. Ten plus years ago he started to train as a Toastmaster and is now a Fellow of the National Association of Toastmasters, working in some of the grandest hotels and houses in the country.

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!
