About the speaker

Tom has a long standing and eclectic interest in London’s history and likes little more than getting together  with likeminded people to talk about it. He has worked variously as a tour guide, writer and heritage educator.  He is currently employed at London Metropolitan Archives,  where he happily spends his days sitting on top of literally miles of  London’s history. He will be delivering this talk in a personal capacity.
