It’s nice to go for a drink in a traditional pub. Have you ever wondered why so many have unusual signs? Why that name? How was it conceived and when? This talk explores the origin and sometimes the meanings, reasons and history of this British phenomenon. Going for a pint or glass of wine will never be the same again. Your members will be fascinated by this factual and occasionally amusing talk.

About Victor Botterill

My name is Vic Botterill and I have been a public speaker for all kinds of occasions for more years than I care to remember.

My thirty odd years in the police culminating in the the rank of Chief Inspector has given me a unique insight into Human behaviour from the ordinary to the extraordinary. I try to address the way we really are, from a multitude of fascinating, amusing and sometimes challenging views and subjects.

My talks are great for every type of gathering, tailored to fit everyone's requirements, and some are more suitable than others for after dinner events.
