I regularly do talks, speeches, readings and other events, both for the public and bespoke for corporate clients, across the UK and sometimes internationally. Check back here to see if I’ve added any near you!
I love Nerd Nite – fascinating and funny speeches from people who care about all sorts of stuff. This time I’ll be using the excuse that it’s Wassail Week to talk about the hidden magic and mystery of apples.
From the event website:
The apple is so ubiquitous, it’s almost invisible. Like air or water, we take it for granted. But why, of all fruits, is the apple so embedded in our history and culture? On the eve of Wassail Night – when thousands head out to dark orchards to perform mystic rituals to wake the trees from their winter slumber – Pete Brown, author of The Apple Orchard, looks at the magical, totemic power of our favourite fruit.
