THE CROP CIRCLE MYSTERY
With stunning visuals, Andy explores the extraordinary phenomenon of crop circles, the intricate shapes which appear in fields around the world each summer and still defy total explanation despite media scepticism and much debate. This lively and inspiring presentation explains the fascinating history of the mysterious patterns up to the present and explores how both the designs and some of the intriguing and imaginative theories concerning them have developed over the years.
UNEXPLAINED MYSTERIES AND COVER-UPS (a.k.a. THE TRUTH AGENDA)
In a compelling and thought-provoking presentation, Andy investigates some of the most famous unexplained mysteries of recent history, finding unexpected linking threads between them. What is the truth about UFOs, pyramids, ghosts, religious apparitions, psychic phenomena, visions of the future and ancient prophecies, and what is their connection to famous conspiracy theories concerning the Moon landings, 9/11 and claims that our lives are secretly run by a shadowy ruling elite..?
A CONSPIRACY HISTORY OF THE WORLD
Why do people believe in conspiracy theories, and what is the real evidence to support them? Andy uncovers an intriguing alternative account of civilisation, as seen through the eyes of those who question the establishment version of events, taking in everything from the Roman Empire, the Gunpowder Plot and the World Wars, to John F Kennedy, Watergate, the NASA missions, Princess Diana, 9/11, the New World Order, and other lingering controversies in a fascinating and often eye-opening historical journey.
THE STORY OF ENGLISH FREEDOM
From the rebellions of Boudicca against Roman invaders to the Peasants’ Revolt and the modern Poll Tax riots, from the truly revolutionary ideas put forward in Cromwellian times to influential movers and shakers such as Thomas Paine, the Suffragettes, and George Orwell, ‘Freedom’ has always been a key issue in English history. Andy shines a fascinating light on some of the most significant leaps of the centuries and sees how they still resonate today.
LEWES AND BONFIRE NIGHT
Illustrated with his own spectacular photographs, Andy explores the historical Sussex town of Lewes – world-renowned for its huge annual Bonfire Night festivities – and takes a revealing look at the enthralling multi-layered rituals and events which make this colourful and controversial mix of folklore, liberty issues and burlesque humour unique. Andy, born and bred in Lewes, uses his inside knowledge to give an insightful glimpse into this vibrant town, full of mystery and tradition.
A CELEBRATORY HISTORY OF CHRISTMAS (a.k.a. THE DEEPER HISTORY HISTORY OF CHRISTMAS) – Nov & Dec only
In an uplifting presentation, Andy uncovers the fascinating background to the festive season. From the ancient ceremonies of light in the darkness, to the marking of the birth of a messiah, mid-December has long been a time for rejoicing. Yet Christmas traditions have splintered into many guises and seasonal celebration was even banned in Puritan times. Andy shows why, for all the modern commercialisation, Christmas – which has deeper roots than many people know – has survived and still has meaning for us now.
Current Events talks:
TRANSFORMING THE GLOBAL AGENDA
As the world rapidly changes, with global upheaval and more cover-ups and conspiracies being revealed than ever before, is this evidence that ancient prophecies were right and that we have entered a new era of changed consciousness? If so, how can we positively make our way through these uncharted waters and not fall prey to fear and disempowerment? Andy gives a broad overview of current key issues and explores the accelerating need to create a new mindset and a truly collective responsibility which could offer the world extraordinary opportunities in extraordinary times.
