What people are saying:

"I thoroughly enjoyed the event today.  It was packed, informative, entertaining and very good value for money.  Philip Womack was fantastic - so passionate and inspiring and he totally succeeded in making a very erudite and even possibly dry subject accessible to a total novice like myself." J.P on How To Read Greek Tragedy


Carolyn on The Guide to Greek Mythology: The perfect engaging venue and the perfect speaker time flew as did Phillip a wildly enthusiastic and hugely knowledgeable speaker a conveyor of knowledge at whistle-stop speed i wrote copious notes as his enthusiasm was infectious..all delivered with humour and engagement. ... Marvellous evening ..time flew .learnt so much and now hope to Bluff with the best of them. *****

Philip & Debra:  A fascinating talk by Philip Womack whose knowledge, enthusiasm and humour made a complex subject very understandable, and left you keen to learn more. *****  Steve

Kirsty:  One of the most fun talks I've been to in recent years. A brilliant and entertaining evening at the London Sketch Club. The venue itself is a nod to historic London and provided a unique backdrop to this lively and informative event. The speaker had an encyclopaedic knowledge of his subject and the talent to present it so that even a complete Greek Mythology novice - like myself - was able to understand the complexities of ancient times. I walked away with a head full of knowledge and not a clue how to use it. A great evening. ****
