Stephen Butt

Welcome

This blog is about my interests in history and photography. I have always enjoyed discovering something new about the past, and there is always much to discover.

I am always pleased to chat about the subjects covered in my books and to hear about new historical research projects which I may be able to help you with.

I can also present illustrated talks to local history and heritage societies on a variety of subjects, some quite obscure, and I have my own audio-visual equipment.

If you would like to chat about a book, project, visit or idea, in the first instance, please contact me by email here.

Thomas the Tank Engine

EventsPosted by Stephen Sat, February 11, 2017 16:10:50
On Friday 17th February I am honoured to be chairing an evening to celebrate the work of John Theodore Eardley Kenney, a fine artist of the latter half of the twentieth century who lived and worked in Kibworth.



John worked across many genres, from magnificently-detailed paintings of the hunting scenes of south Leicestershire to avdertisements for Wicksteed Park in Northamptonshire, the illustrations for 31 Ladybird books and six Thomas the Tank Engine stories.


I shall be joined by John's friends and former colleagues at the Kibworth design Studio of J.E.Slater.

Please contact Kibworth Community Library or the Kibworth Bookshop if you would like to join us.
