I write ideas down that I like and stand up and say them/perform them at poetry nights, comedy nights and in theatres at night in the U.K.  I also enjoy painting, but I have realised it is quicker to say

"A field of dead red Roses with a T REX in it" than to paint a field of dead red Roses with a T REX in it.

I have written six one hour poetry/comedy/theatre shows and performed them at the Edinburgh Fringe and around the UK. The 2012 show was an hour long show about the colour yellow called 'The Yellow Show'. The 2013 show was an hour long show about the sky called 'The Sky Show'. The 2014 show was an hour long show about faces and is called 'The Face Show'.  The 2015 show was an hour long show about water called 'The Water Show'. The 2016 show was  about sleep called 'The Sleep Show'The 2017 show was about hair and was called 'The Hair Show'. The 2018 show wasabout talking and it was called the Talk Show. The first six all got good and bad reviews. The reviews can be seen and read by clicking on the appropriate circle.  I also help run a poetry night for people who think they may not like a night of poetry called 'Bang Said The Gun'. BANG has its own circle and is in my opinion a good night to go to on a date.

In 2014 I was asked to be Glastonbury Festival poet in residence. There is more about this in the news section I think. I haven't written the news yet though.  Let's see how this bit goes first.  The pieces I wrote at Glastonbury can be seen by clicking on the Glastonbury button.
