Grown Ups

 If you’re a teacher, an assistant, a guardian, a parent, a head or a dinner lady - or anyone connected with schools - this is the page for you!
 I’ve worked in over 3000 schools both in the UK and abroad delivering creative writing workshops and my stand up show.

(If you're an arts centre or theatre or festival you have to go here instead) 

"Fabulous to see a presenter reach all levels and ages and groups!"
