Meet The Speaker, Roger

Born in the industrial North of England, during the second world war, Roger’s upbringing was humble, but his recollections are dominated by indelible memories of humanity, care, love and, above all, music and lots and lots of humour. Roger is now, primarily, a storyteller. He draws on his incredible experiences of life and performance, to deliver an eclectic mix of creative music and hilarious tales, informing and entertaining special interest groups, the length and breadth of Britain. His live performances have spanned seven decades and three continents.

Preparing for the Event
