This is a page of brief biographies of some members of History at Large

George Fleming

George Fleming George grew up in the Orkney Islands during the late 40's and early 50's. Story-telling then played a significant part in the social and cultural life of that community and he is inclined to blame this for his addiction to narrating history at audiences!

After National Service in the Argylls, he read History at Edinburgh University then rejoined the Army, as an Instructor Officer in the Royal Army Educational Corps. He ended his long association with the Army as a Civilian Lecturer, finally becoming "semi-retired" in 1993.

George has written many historical pieces for performance by various companies. In 1979, he wrote "The Amesbury Play", a major Community Play for Amesbury's millenium, and in 1994 Salisbury's Community Play, produced that year in the Cathedral with a company of over a hundred. George is Historical Director of History at Large.

Sue Paramor

Sue Paramor Sue likes to date her performing career from her early days in Cyprus, when she was head of the Cathedral Choir there. She then took up nursing and practised as a Theatre Nurse for many years - until the call of the legitimate theatre became too strong!

Joining the "Fivepenny Festival" in Salisbury she worked for five years in mobile arts, developing the craft of improvisation. This was to be very useful later, when she went on to produce and direct musical theatre and drama, and to run popular and highly successful workshop courses.

In recent years she has worked regularly in film and television, with roles in "The Bill" and "Casualty" to name just two.

Always with music to the fore, she writes and produces songs at her own recording studio, in collaboration with local musicians.

She also performs regularly, as lead singer, with the jazz band "Get Wise" and "The New Antonians" swing orchestra.
