Gregory is available for walks and talks on Deal and Walmer for schools, students and societies. 

His presentation, `The Prefab Kid`, is an hour long entertainment with words and music based on his reminiscences of a 1950s childhood in Kent.  ( Piano accompaniment by Neil Wright. )

Reviews for The Prefab Kid.

As a fifties child myself, Gregory's fascinating talk was like stepping back in time. He is a very entertaining speaker and his reminiscences of life in fifties Deal were vivid and engaging. At times funny and poignant, he reminds us of a life lived without the benefit of the internet, of innocent pleasures and true social networks. An evening sure to leave you smiling!
