Hello! I love working with children, in fact I’ve been making arts learning fun for creative writing, performing and poetry for ages 3-18 for many years, with Apples and SnakesTelling Tales and organisations including Creative Partnerships, Royal Marsden Charity, Comedy for Kids and Stroud Fringe.

I wrote a book of funny poetry:  The Strangest Sandwich in the World (and other silly stuff) book is available to order on Amazon or contact me for a signed copy. Buy the book and see reviews here.

Poetry and/or storytelling shows and workshops

Poetry show – The Strangest Sandwich in the World…and Other Silly Stuff (at Sutton Theatres this summer and on tour) with book and workshops attached.

Storytelling – Norse Gods, Shakespeare, interactive and creative storytelling, Fairytales retold.

The shows are interactive and fun, with stories or poems depending on your needs.

Enjoyable – “Amusing” “Loved the interactive games” “Children talked about it all weekend, want to buy the book!”
