Tower of London’s Ravenmaster coming to Nottingham

Posted onPosted on 13th Apr

People will have the chance to find out more about what life is really like at the Tower of London when its Ravenmaster Chris Skaife visits Nottingham.

Chris has been the Yeoman Warder Ravenmaster since 2011 and is one of the stars of Channel 5’s Inside The Tower, and as well as working at the tower he also lives there.

Chris joined the British Army at the age of 18, where he was with the Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment. He is one of only six people to hold the title of Ravenmaster and looks after seven birds.

Chris will be appearing at the National Justice Museum in Nottingham on 9th September, between 2pm and 4pm, at an event organised by Trinder Events, which is run by sisters Katie and Lucy Trinder.

Lucy works as a project manager, while Katie has more than 20 year’s experience as a journalist and event planner. She has previously worked for the BBC, British Forces Broadcasting Services, Mansfield 103.2, and various other local radio stations.

Katie said: “We are very excited to be organising our first In Conversation With event and Chris is the perfect guest. He has had such a varied career and living and working at the Tower of London is something unique.

“He’s so warm and friendly and his enthusiasm for what he does just shines through. The show will be split into two parts, the first half will be Chris and I chatting about his life and his career and the second half, the audience will have the chance to ask Chris questions. Chris has been involved in some amazing historical events and has some incredible stories to tell.”

Tickets are priced £19.95, including tea or coffee, and are available from Eventbrite.
