Colin Babb and Mihir Bose at the Guyana High Commission (UK)

With Mihir Bose, journalist and author, at the Guyana High Commission, London

“Colin’s talk was very informative and engaging, and taught me a lot about the history of Guyana and Northern South America. Particularly how culture and politics bleed into one another. It was entertaining and engaging for people who don’t love cricket, and I enjoyed listening to Colin’s personal stories.”
Patrick Malone, Library Manager, Roehampton Library

I’ve presented events at a variety of venues including bookshops, carnivalscricket clubs, The Cricket Society, libraries, schools, The National Archivesuniversities, 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 entitled The Significance of Cricket to the Windrush Generation and the Legacy of the West Indies Tours of the UK (1950s to Present). This seminar was organised and hosted by The Institute of Commonwealth Studies/Surrey County Cricket Club. To mark the 70th anniversary of the first West Indian Test match victory in England at Lord’s, 1950.
