All Sun Jester's talks and entertainments aim to enlighten, divert and amuse audiences of all sizes and ages.

In the mid-19th century, many of London’s poorest inhabitants earned their living on the streets of the capital, by legal and sometimes not-so-legal means. From Crossing Sweepers to Costermongers, we introduce some of the more colourful characters of Victorian London, many of whom may have inspired the stories of Dickens.

“Sun Jester provides educational tours on a range of subjects including prehistory, poison, and princesses. Even to provide talks on one subject to such a significantly high standard would be incredible, but it seems Sun Jester can do talks on anything! Graham’s talk was brilliantly prepared, well-supplemented with images, and he seems to have a real passion for the subject which made the talk even more exciting.”
