A message from Mr Twit…

On Wednesday 15th July 2020 storyteller Andy Copps and myself will be broadcasting live from The Cryer Arts Centre, Carshalton. We will be telling “Billy and the Minpins” and “The Twits”. Here’s Mr Twits to tell you more about this very special children’s storytelling event…

Tickets to these children’s storytelling events are available here:

Tickets to see storyteller Andy Copps telling Billy and the Minpins

Tickets to see storyteller John Kirk telling The Twits

Each story will last 30-45 minutes and is suitable for school age children and families. If you decide to purchase a code you don’t even have to watch the storytelling live because the broadcast will be viewable for 24 hours. This means you could be in the United State, India or China and still catch two top quality storytellers in action.

Mr Twit and I have been touring the UK since 2016 and in that time we have visited many schools, libraries and festivals. I have always believed myself to be fortunate to have the rights to tell such a wonderful story and have done everything I could to make it as accessible as possible to as many people. During the national lockdown I have been prerecording stories for the internet and will be doing a number of Zoom and Youtube Live events from my house in July and August for libraries across the UK but these are generally for specific localities; on Wednesday 15th July it doesn’t matter where in the world you live, your family can join the virtual audience and watch as we broadcast from my natural environment, a theatre. Me, on a stage with lights and production values, sharing a masterpiece of a story, now that’s very exciting! If you have ever seen me tell the story I hope you will recommend this event to your friends and family and that you’ll remember to have your sticky glue (water) ready so you can get involved at home.

” John, as usual, your energy was tangible, even through the screen! I could see the children taking part and having a blast.”
