Telling Tales: bringing the past to life by Mike Swaddling (Thu. 31 Jan, 2019 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm)

A retired marketing communications manager living in Sandhurst, after getting his wife to sign his release papers from full time work Mike was able to follow up an idea inspired by his father's memoirs to help retired people with their reminiscences. Over 10 years, he visited retirement homes and recorded first-hand stories of lives stretching back almost 100 years. These were compiled into several published anthologies. The stories are as varied as human nature itself, and his talk brings a handful of them to life in entertaining fashion and with lots of humour. He will also share some of the techniques he learned on how to get people to talk about their past lives.
