Summer Library Events 2019

It’s always great to spend time in lots of fab libraries whilst the schools are closed for the summer holidays and this year were no different. I held writing workshops for Blackpool libraries and Lancashire libraries and performed my stories at some of their libraries too. Big thanks to the staff at Palatine Library, Moor…

Summer Storytelling 2018

  It’s always one of the highlights of the year when I visit my local libraries to share some stories. Six library visits took place across two weeks in August. These gigs are always important because I usually take some time off from performing in the summer, so they are great to get back into…

@TheGrange

I love sharing my stories in libraries. When Blackpool Libraries asked me to be part of the Boundary Library reopening event I jumped at the chance. When they asked me to be the ‘special guest’ and deliver a speech and cut the ribbon, I was gobsmacked! @The Grange is a fab project based in one…

It’s great to share stories with lots of witches, skeletons and vampires, to name but a few. On the Saturday before Halloween, Blackpool Library Service asked me…

National Libraries Day

The day kicked off at Palatine Library where I told a couple of Impossible Tales as well as reading from the book. The first tale was the first story I…

Summer Reading Challenge Promotional Video

Back in May, I filmed a promotional video at Central Library to help promote the Summer Reading Challenge across the libraries in Blackpool. It was quite a nerve-racking experience but I really enjoyed it. I was happy to help out as I’m passionate about getting kids┬áreading and that is one of the main reasons behind…
