They say never judge a book by its cover; equally never judge a speaker by the title of his talk!


David Bell, known fondly as the Plague Doctor, is a hugely popular and refreshingly different guest speaker recommended by hundreds of clubs & societies across the UK.


David will not only surprise you but will also make you think and certainly put a smile on your face. I promise you are in for a treat.


Having retired to Eyam in the heart of the beautiful Peak District David was confident that in his quest for a quieter life the famous plague heritage of his new village would be nothing other than a passing distraction. How wrong was he.


Tens of thousands of tourists flock to Eyam every year to see for themselves where a brave disease driven lockdown was played out so tragically. 


Doom and gloom nevertheless is not the order of the day. David's tongue-in-cheek take on living in 'the plague village' and on staying fit and well 350 years ago should convince you that even in today's troubled times we all have a lot to be thankful for. 


Laughter is the best medicine in the Plague Doctor's world, so brace yourself - clench your buttocks - and reserve your appointment now. You'll feel all the better for it.

"I was so sorry to have missed your talk. I gather there was much hilarity on the night

and that even the hardest to please were chuckling along. Brilliant stuff, thank you."

Ann Swift, President Cawthorne Ladies, West Yorkshire
