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).
