2018 Appearances

Thanks to my fabulous audiences at Hertfordshire LitFest, RHS Malvern Festival, Wychwood Festival, and Blythe Hill Festival to my brillustrators, Steve May and Gemma Hastilow, my ace bassist, James McGowen & my wife, Lisa for learning almost all the chords.

It was great to be back at Latitude Festival for the fourth consecutive year, with a brand new show based on my book, Death or Ice Cream? Thanks to the pupils of Hollesley, St Marys and Easton for making the Friday shows such fun. And I am extremely grateful to every single member of our audiences over the weekend for sharing your energy and humour.

I was also back at Camp Bestival for the fourth year and this time, my
Ninja Alien Dinosaur Party
hit the big time as I played Bollywood stage and The Big Top. Unfortunately, the festival was shut down on the Sunday due to the severe weather. But my family and I still had two fantastic days so thanks to all involved.

If you would like to book any of the above shows for your festival please get in contact here. And here’s what’s still to come.
