Great British Eccentricity

Talks - General Interest

Event Description


Whether it’s because we are an island, or whether or not it is because we are a mixture of so many races, ideas and cultures, no-one knows. However, there is one thing we can be certain of, and that is that Britain and the British are ever so slightly nuts, and hence we are the envy of the world! In this humorous and enlightening talk Geoff Harris scratches the surface of British eccentricities from people to clubs and institutions. You never know, you might find out where you fit in!

  • Duration: 45 mins

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!
