Tour guides have many interests and mine include local history, research, writing and teaching; so in the quieter winter months when I am not guiding visitors, I act as a consultant for various local organisations; and as a media advisor for independent TV and film production companies.
I have a number of ‘specialist subjects’ on which I give talks or teach classes: these range from Ulster-Scots language and literature, to folklore and superstitions. I speak on local history, events and culture; and I deliver talks on people from Robert Burns to CS Lewis, and from the Shipyard Workers of Belfast to the Reivers of the Scottish and English borders.
I also facilitate workshops, design and deliver courses, and assist local organisations with research projects. Examples include ‘history through art’ for young people; education for mutual understanding with disadvantaged community groups; and arts and crafts classes for local residents’ organisations.
My work with local TV companies ranges from script advice to dialogue-coaching to on-screen delivery.
