Widney and Solihull U3A
Posted by Kevin Hicks on 19th May 2012

It was quite daunting to stand up in front of a packed hall of students of the University of the Third Age yesterday.  You could already tell many of them were historians in their own right, but as soon as I began my lecture on the Titanic, you could hear a pin drop.  When it was over, I was absolutely staggered by one gentleman who stood up to tell me that in all his days he had never heard such a wonderful presentation as the one I’d just given, this was accompanied by thunderous applause.  I was humbled to say the least.   

Titanic; A Health & Safety Nightmare is my latest presentation and one that will appeal to a wide audience.  If anyone is interested in booking it for their group or club, please get in touch.
