For several years I have had the pleasure of being a tour leader for the excellent travel company Kirker Holidays. I have led tours to Venice for opera and art, to Rome and the surrounding country for visits to the fabulous villas and gardens, to Pesaro for the renowned Rossini festival, to Florence, Lucca, Genoa and much more.
The tours are for, as they say, ‘The discerning traveller’ and guests stay in four star hotels with delicious meals and wonderful visits to be experienced.

Since 2008 I have been working in association with Soho House in presenting a series of talks that usually take place in the form of conversations with artists, curators, directors, critics and journalists to discuss their upcoming shows, previous work or a potential project. It may be a well-known critic or commentator talking us through upcoming events such as Frieze London or The Venice Biennale. It’s like an informal ‘chat-show’ and the audience are encouraged to participate with questions and observations.
