Giles Cooper Entertainment presents ‘An Evening with DAN SNOW – The History Guy’. This exclusive ‘History Hit’ UK tour will feature the well-known historian, broadcaster and TV presenter recount anecdotes of memorable experiences from his very successful career. Otherwise known as ‘The History Guy’, Dan will also research and include historical facts relating to the specific area/town of each theatre on the tour and will be aided by the use of digital screens. The show will be an undoubted success with academics, students, families (young and old) and all those interested in the history of their region and town. The show will conclude with a 20mins Q&A.
