Director’s biography: history, action and performance
Mark Griffin (or Griff as he is usually known) has been involved in the entertainment and event business since before leaving school.
“A love of history and of stunts has undoubtedly robbed the world of a fine star of light entertainment. Although I can sing and dance a little, I can joust and show off historical skills a heck of a lot better.
“I’ve worked in the historical field for nearly three decades, performing in, and running, countless shows all over the world. My skill range extends from story telling to jousting, via action choreography, expertise in period detail, show design and more. I’m very keen on attention to detail; that’s important when recreating the past but equally so when considering what the audience is experiencing. It’s vital to ensure there is energy and enthusiasm in whatever the team does.
“Each time I’m working - whether I’m dangling from a rope with a machinegun, holding up a stagecoach, or addressing an audience in the Great Hall at Hampton Court Palace as Henry VIII - I realise how lucky I am to be doing this. Of course there are times when it’s not so pleasant: seeing an opponent charging towards me on a horse, or being up to my waist in freezing water for Time Team trying to catch fish medieval style, for example: but I still wouldn’t swap it for a ‘proper’ job.”Follow @GriffHistorical (Mark's personal twitter account)
