Derby Speaker’s Corner

Free Speech

I was kindly invited to help open Derby’s Speaker’s Corner on Saturday 20th October and tell a few of me tales in public. I’ve no particular politics, but spreading love between pirates and merfolk is always important. Twas a grand event all round, with a range of charming and interesting speakers and an appreciative crowd of folk. I was born in Derby so it was nice to do something for the city.

Many thanks to Derby Live for supporting and organising the event There’s been a bit of press, so there’s a few photos below and a video for you to peek at.
