Members may remember that Sarah gave a memorable talk during 2021, on Sex and Scandals! and is back by popular demand for a new presentation. 

 

Sarah says; “Having spent twenty three years working full time within the Retail Banking Sector I decided that I wanted to spend more time with my young children. The time was right a career change, so I moved sectors into Heritage.

I began working at Hampton Court Palace for Historic Royal Palaces in 2008 as a State Apartment Warder and Tourist Guide. I trained as a Guide Lecturer gaining my White Badge as an Affiliate of the Institute of Tourist Guiding.”

 

‘Working with the ghosts of Hampton Court Palace’ is a very popular talk. Sarah will wear one of her costumes whilst she talks about her experiences working with the ghosts at Hampton Court Palace.
