“Colin gave an insightful, fascinating and engaging presentation of the importance of cricket in his life and a vivid image of the year 1973. The intersections between sport, television and politics that Colin talked about not only emphasised the differences between now and then, but also the significant effects of a game like cricket on the lives and pastimes of so many”.

Thoughtful, fun and engaging presentations, video and audio clips, and mystery quizzes.
These are some of the delights you can expect at a Colin Babb book event!
I’ve presented events at a variety of venues including bookshops, carnivals, cricket clubs, libraries, schools, The National Archives, universities, the Guyana High Commission (UK) and for Guyana Speaks (UK).
I’ve also been a Chair, guest panellist and contributor to various events. Including an Institute of Commonwealth Studies Windrush Generation day, and the West Indian cricket session at the 2020 Windrush Caribbean Film Festival.
I enjoyed being the Chair of a Cricket Witness seminar in May 2020.
This Zoom seminar was hosted by The Institute of Commonwealth Studies in partnership with Surrey County Cricket Club.
It was organised to celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the first West Indian Test match victory in England at Lord’s, 1950.
