About Me


I created Blast From the Past as I am passionate about inspiring young people and developing their interest in History. I have a background in Education, having taught for twenty five years in Secondary schools. This is combined with a range of acting experience including work for the BBC and appearances on West Country Television.

A range of characters are available and each History workshop will be delivered in an exciting way to inspire and motivate pupils to enable them to engage with the past.

A typical workshop will include:

  • A presentation about the person's life and achievements, delivered in character in authentic costume.

  • A PowerPoint to complement the presentation.

  • A number of learning resources will be used to enhance each History workshop, for example archaeology practicals, games, educational trails, battle drills and artefacts. 

Content is tailored to the requirements of the New National Curriculum and can be modified to meet your needs.
