Malcolm Castle Biography

Fireman, entrepreneur, adventure sports enthusiast, poet and professional speaker all in one! Malcolm Castle is prolific, intelligent, charismatic and funny – the ideal after dinner speaker.

Background

Born in Nelson Lancashire, Malcolm’s first year was spent on a farm on the moors above Rochdale. His move southwards to Shrewsbury happened when his father realised the farm couldn't support a family of four but teaching about farming could. Shropshire had an agricultural college and so it was here where he grew up.
Malcolm’s teenage education was at the local 'Secondary modern school for boys'.  It was a rough, tough school which taught him more about life than academia.

Fireman, entrepreneur, adventure sports enthusiast, poet and professional speaker all in one! Malcolm Castle is prolific, intelligent, charismatic and funny – the ideal after dinner speaker.

Background

Born in Nelson Lancashire, Malcolm’s first year was spent on a farm on the moors above Rochdale. His move southwards to Shrewsbury happened when his father realised the farm couldn't support a family of four but teaching about farming could. Shropshire had an agricultural college and so it was here where he grew up.
Malcolm’s teenage education was at the local 'Secondary modern school for boys'.  It was a rough, tough school which taught him more about life than academia.

Career

After failing to become a helicopter pilot, Malcolm happened across the fire service. Surprisingly, it seemed to fit. Malcolm had variety, adventure, camaraderie, more challenges than he could shake a stick at, time off, enough money and, most of all, the joy of looking forward to going to work!

His life away from the job has been guided by the maxim "If you're gonna be a bear, be a Grizzly!", so if a thing is worth doing, it's worth doing well. He has a love of adventure sports, and so far has spent varying numbers of years doing. . . .scuba diving, water skiing, snow skiing and snowboarding, paragliding, hang gliding, paramotoring, microlighting, sky diving, kite surfing, kite buggying, pot-holing, and rock climbing, with the odd bungee-jump thrown in for good measure.

Not content with adventure alone, Malcolm also enjoys the more artistic side of life and has had the pleasure of acting, producing and directing plays, playing the guitar, writing songs and poetry (funny poems!), ballroom and modern jive dancing, singing, and enjoying shows and musicals.

Malcolm has built a successful business which he has run alongside his fire service career for the last 30 years.

The aim of the business: to finance the adventure sports he so enjoys!

Malcom’s third book, Going to Blazes, has been commissioned, and the whole series has been launched in the US.

He has been recruited by the BBC as their ‘fire service authority’, and he has appeared on various TV shows, including a chat show about dealing with trauma.
