  • Since discovering the “Horrible Histories” books in 1993, and thanks to a series of inspirational teachers throughout his education, Chris has been passionate about history for thirty years.
  • He spent his honeymoon on a guided Jack the Ripper tour in the heart of Whitechapel, at the scenes of the murders themselves.
  • Chris has always delighted in delving beneath the lyrics or catchiness of a song to explore its meaning, the context of the musician who created it, and the life they lived.
