David Bell is a hugely entertaining and refreshingly different guest speaker recommended by hundreds of clubs & societies across the UK. He will not only surprise you but will also make you think; and certainly make you smile.
A proud born & bred Geordie, David retired to the delightful little Peak District village of Eyam some years ago. He was confident that the village's famous plague heritage would be nothing other than a passing distraction. David Bell could not have been more wrong. Tens of thousands of tourists flock to Eyam annually to see for themselves where a brave disease driven lockdown was played out with such tragic consequences. But don't expect too much doom & gloom from this compellng speaker.
David's tongue-in-cheek take on life in Eyam; staying fit and well and avoiding disease 350 years ago will convince you that, even in these troubled times, we all have a lot to be thankful for.
In the mid 1600s the odds were stacked against most people when it came to surviving the latest pandemic. There was no 'science', 'flattening the curve' or lowering the 'R number' then. It was a case of 'que sera sera' and getting on with your life; getting on with the mundane ailments of the day such as bladder-stones, haemorrhoids and constipation. So brace yourself - clench your buttocks - and see how a 17th century doctor coped.
“Despite all we are going through these days laughter is still the best medicine" commented Janet Staine of The Crosspool Ladies Group in Sheffield.
"David Bell came to entertain our members and immediately won us over. He had us all in fits of giggles throughout his 60 minute session. David has the uncanny knack of drawing his audience in with his eclectic storytelling. A sure-fire winner for any club or society looking for a speaker 'on top of his game'."
