" an enthralling guest speaker . . . affable . . . affordable . . . amusing . . . and so different . "

David Bell is a popular and hugely entertaining guest speaker; tried and trusted by hundreds of Clubs and Societies across the UK. He is different, and will not only surprise you but will also make you think . . . . and certainly make you laugh out loud.


The picturesque little Derbyshire Peak District village of Eyam is never shy making capital from its famous past. Tens of thousands of visitors flock there every year to see for themselves where a tragic story of quarantine and sacrifice was played out 355 years ago.


Although David is not an historian or a qualified medic he does nevertheless live in the village and  has a truly captivating tale of his own to tell.


But don't expect too much doom and gloom from a proud Geordie exile as he puts his tongue-in-cheek spin on this unique tourist hot-spot. Surely it's a place to avoid like the plague?

An hour with David Bell is just what the doctor ordered.


                            "I never dreamt at my  age I would be sharing  centre  stage with  a life-sized inflatable doll, let

                             alone demonstrating cures for itchy  haemorrhoids, constipation. and bladder stones.  And of

                             course there's a little  matter of the plague;" added David, " but there  is a lighter side to most

                             subjects if we are in the right frame of mind," 


                            "When my audience are laughing I guess it proves that they  are not only listening to my story

                             but are also probably feeling relaxed; . . . . you just can't beat a good old hearty laugh."

                                “Laughter indeed is the best medicine"    commented  Janet  Stain  of The  Crosspool Ladies

                                Group in Sheffield.“ David came to  entertain our members &  immediately won  us over with

                                his anecdotes  and original  storyline.  He had  us all in fits of giggles  from beginning to end.

                                Just go & see him for yourself whenever he is in your area. He spins fabulous tale & you'll 

                                feel all the better for it !”
