As you can well imagine, the majority of my confirmed talk bookings for 2020 have either been cancelled or rescheduled for later this year or next year.
As a result, my availability in 2021 and 2022 is rapidly diminishing. If you can, contact me as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

I am based near Tunbridge Wells and calculate my costs from there.
Delia came to talk about The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and its influences and her PowerPoint presentation was stunning. Delia clearly loves her subject and her enthusiasm is infectious. She kept members enraptured for 45 minutes and left the best till last. Recommended.
We invited Delia to come and talk to us on Victorian London Street Life. Her talk had been painstaking researched and is further enhanced by a series of compelling illustrations. Her presentation is slick and informative culminating in some light-hearted audience participation. A thoroughly enjoyable and informative topic – highly recommended.
Delia invited me along to hear her new talk about MGM’s musicals and didn’t know what to expect.
Her presentation and knowledge are certainly amazing, the wonderful clips of bygone movies were very uplifting. Delia always adds a lot of fun to her talks with snippets we may never have known.
The Fabulous 50s
I just wanted to say thank you both so much for the talk yesterday. It was brilliant and thoroughly enjoyed by our Members. The “buzz” in the hall afterwards was fantastic – I’ve never seen them so animated and chatty – Usually you are faced with a couple of rows of blank faces! So, thank you so much for the talk and extra special thanks for waking people up (in the nicest possible way).
Delia’s talk on Women in WW1 was very informative and interesting. She has an engaging style and draws you into the subject matter. She includes interesting facts and delivers them in a way that keeps the audience riveted. Delia is certainly one of the best speakers we have had at our WI meetings. President –
Delia’s presentation on ‘1930s The Golden Age of Hollywood’ did not disappoint! From start to finish she had us spellbound with the information she had researched. Who would have known that she was a distant relative of Cecil B DeMille, one of the most influential filmmakers in history.
We also enjoyed watching some of the great dance routines produced by Busby Berkeley. Included in the talk were many original film clips, which by today standards look stilted but fun all the same.
The Roaring Twenties
“Delia has been to Marden WI to speak three times and we are always delighted to welcome her.
In August she brought her ‘Roaring 20s’ talk and it was completely fascinating from start to finish. The images of fashion, music and the antics of the rich and famous were shown and described in a very professional power point presentation – photos, music and video. It was great fun and thoroughly enjoyed by all our ladies.
Wow! Delia gave us a delightful presentation about The Story of ENSA and it was a trip into an era that evoked so many happy times at a time of hardship but much camaraderie. A really excellent afternoon which we all enjoyed and appreciated immensely. A true testament was when I was asked “Does she have other talks? I did enjoy that” which followed her departure.
It was a bonus for us to hear every word and have such a narration that we could hang on to every sentence rather than try to follow a gabbled account. This is an afternoon we will long remember.
