Be prepared to be wowed by Nottingham’s leading operatic comedienne and humorously tickled with Victorian slang and phrase. You are sure to leave the engagement a positive giggle mugs!

All talks are available on zoom and are presented in full Victorian costume live from Mildred's parlour!

Evening Zoom talks are £80 for an hours talk with additional time given at the end for a Q and A session. Day time rates vary.


"Oh Mildred! Perfectly costumed, she imparts information while able to make you laugh, or shiver in your seat. A great singing voice too. A multi- talented lady."

"Milly is a fantastic and incredible storyteller who will regale you with hilarious (and sometimes saucy!) tales of yore on her tours. She is also known to burst into a song or two! I absolutely insist you should book a tour with her immediately."

About Milly Lawson

With a passion for sharing history through story telling, songs and comedy Mildred Freeman was a character created by Milly Lawson whilst working at one of the last remaining music halls in the UK. With a background in heritage, education and as a professional cellist and performer, Milly researches, creates and delivers her history talks in an entertaining, insightful and (sometimes) very dramatic fashion.

Milly lives in Long Eaton, Nottingham with her loving husband (Mr Butler) and her young sons Ezra (the young squire) and Gideon (the young master). In her free time Milly can usually be found watching costume dramas whilst knitting and sipping hot coffee (or gin, depending on the time of the day).
