I perform a number of acclaimed poetry shows at festivals, theatres, conferences (find out more), schools, parks and all sorts of other places besides, up and down the country. Some shows are suitable for adults, some for children, some for families. I adapt the content and length of each show to suit the age of my audience and the nature of the event. In other words, tell me what sort of show you’d like, and I’ll put it on for you!
