James Crawshaw holds a 1st Class Honours Degree in Music from Surrey University and a PGCE for the teaching of Music.
Audiences are encouraged to sing-a-long to some old Music Hall favourites, and be entertained with tales from the life and times of Marie Lloyd.
Alternatively, if your organization is simply looking for an informative and entertaining ‘after dinner’ style speaker, Rita can present a 45-60 minute talk on ‘The Life and Times of Marie Lloyd’.
For further information on any of the above, or to arrange a booking, please contact Rita.
