Five fantastic bits of feedback from February…

I was recently looking at the testimonials section of my website. I’m really proud of the comments I have there but some of them now appear quite old. Here are five extraordinarily lovely reviews that I have received for work in the month of February 2020. I’m chuffed with all of them.

Number One – Teacher in Sussex after a traditional tales storytelling session.

“The children had a lovely time and were engaged from the first moment. My favourite thing was seeing their faces rapt with attention and enjoyment, staring up at you; they were genuinely happy.”

Number Two – Teacher in Hertfordshire after I took part in a storytelling for well being event.

“Engaging children who aren’t always fully engaged!”

Number Three – from The Roald Dahl Museum after “The Twits”

“It was a great session! Our visitors really enjoyed the performance and the interaction. You made the story come to life and everyone in the room was absorbed in it.”

Number Four – A parent who saw me tell “The Enormous Crocodile” in Carshalton.

“(A) Naturally wonderful, gifted storyteller.”

Number Five – from Rugby Gallery & Museum after I devised and presented “George’s Marvellous Museum”

“… worth every penny!”

After a quiet December and January this month I have helped launch The Sefton Saga as well as The Wolverhampton Literary Festival and school, museum and gallery sessions in Sussex, London, Kent and the Midlands. These comments give a real sense of my strengths and the quality of the work I do. They are a real boost ahead of World Book Week and fingers crossed I can achieve similar praise during mad March.
