Colin Babb speaking
Speaking at a Surrey CCC/ACE Programme event at The Oval

“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, 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 cricket session at the 2020 Windrush Caribbean Film Festival. 

In May 2020, I enjoyed being the Chair of a Cricket Witness seminar 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.

In October 2023, I was a Q&A guest with Chevy Green, Director of Programmes at the African Caribbean Engagement (ACE) programme, during a Cricket Witness seminar follow-up event at The Oval.

In March 2024, I was warmly welcomed as the guest speaker for the Martlets Cricket Club, Sussex, annual dinner and awards evening.
