Alan Stone – Local History and Cider Speaker
One of my favourite ways of spreading knowledge about my passions is as a speaker to numerous local groups.
As I seem to be frequently asked back two or even three times I think the tag ‘popular local speaker’ may not be too immodest!
Subjects that I have given presentations on in recent years include:
- Various aspects of local history for the Shepton Mallet town and district including Croscombe.
- Silas the Victorian Rural Postman.
- The history of Wassailing
- Somerset Cider Heritage.
- Cider today and marketing in the hypocritical world.
- The Mid Somerset Show – and rural shows in general.
- The Cheesemaking Heritage of Somerset.
I also lead groups for a variety of local history walks, cider tours and Wassails.
