In addition to the public events listed below, Tim Moorey regularly gives talks and conducts workshops for private groups including the Women's Institute and the University of the Third Age

"A huge thank you for your wonderfully entertaining talk today. It was both informative and amusing. I've never heard so much laughter from our U3A group. Another sign of a good talk is when there are lots of questions/comments and you certainly had plenty of those (or should that be them?)."
U3A Tunbridge Wells

One-to-one tutoring is also available.

Recent private events include workshops as part of Enrichment Days at The Perse School, Cambridge, Maidstone Grammar School, Wallington High School for Girls. Blackfen School & Coopers School Chislehurst.
