She has worked with many organisations to bring history to mainstream audiences – including SkyArts, NBC, Channel 5, History Hit, The National Portrait Gallery, Channel 4, Call of Duty, LadBible, Minecraft, Xbox, BBC Bitesize, Christie’s and The National Trust.

Alice has experience in scripting, presenting and producing documentaries. For several years she worked at History Hit TV, where she presented numerous documentaries alongside the likes of Dan Snow and Dan Cruickshank. These include The Secrets of Stourhead, Sissinghurst, Secrets of Shakespeare’s Stratford, The English Parish Church and Ada Lovelace.

She also hosted the Historic Locations series on the History Hit YouTube channel, which explored the secrets of some of the greatest historic locations in Britain. These were presented in a lively, fast-paced style, and include Blenheim Palace, Hever Castle, Temple Church, Salisbury Cathedral and Wells Cathedral.

Alice shares her love of history via her social media channels, where she has over a million followers (@history_alice). She has worked with many heritage groups and corporate clients to create social media history content.

She is also experienced at live events – hosting conversations, speaking on panels, speaking on the radio and giving talks. She has interviewed historians such as Peter Frankopan and Dan Jones, hosted at venues such as 10 Downing Street, The Victoria and Albert Museum and Chalke Valley History Festival, and been a guest on Radio 4 and Times Radio.

Her debut bestselling history book, UPROAR!, was released in March 2023, which shines a light on satirical printmakers of the late Georgian period. UPROAR! has enjoyed critical acclaim for combining scholarship with an entertaining writing style (which in turn has opened up this subject to a much wider audience). To promote UPROAR! Alice is speaking at many different events, including the Hay Festival, Oxford Literary Festival and Chalke Valley History Festival.

Alice also often writes articles and book reviews, including for The Spectator, The Times, The Telegraph and Tatler.
