Hello, I'm Kris Lee and I present lectures and workshops on a variety of subjects to groups such as local history societies, WI's, WEA, museums and drama groups. I aim to present engaging material in an enjoyable way that bridges the gap between scholarly thinking and a public audience. I support my talks with illustrated presentations and they can include questions, discussion and participation. My partner Liz and I also lead talks and field trips about our researches into dowsing.
In 2015 I was awarded an MA with merit in Shakespeare Studies at The Shakespeare Institute in Stratford-on-Avon. My dissertation was titled Astrological fate in Romeo & Juliet and Julius Caesar. I am based in the North Cotswolds and you can contact me by e-mail or telephone to find out more about talks I offer.
The Cheltenham world dance group meets at the Friends' Meeting House, Warwick Place, GL52 2NP, normally on the second Sunday of the month 7-9pm. Note the venue is closed for refurbishment at present so the next dance date here will be 9 December.
I am also one of the dance leaders at Holycombe, Whichford, CV36 5PH where the world dance group meets on the third Wednesdays 7.30-9pm every month except August.
In 2016 I also rehearsed and led small choirs singing world music at an event at St. Pauls' Cathedral and at the Plumpton mini dance festival. I also led a Balkan dance session at Plumpton, and an Albanian dance workshop in the Cotswolds. In 2017 and 2018 I led Balkan singing and dance workshops at Plumpton.
In 2018 with my partner Liz I led tours of Tewkesbury Abbey, Deerhurst Church, Hailes Abbey and Church and Belas Knap long barrow telling stories from their history and demonstrating dowsing for earth energies.
