Over the past decade, I’ve performed my stories all over the country and as part of national festivals including Brighton Fringe, Small Wonder Festival and Felixstowe Book Festival. Alongside the writing itself, I feel there is something invaluable in hearing stories performed live by their creators, and I’ve been lucky enough to read alongside some wonderful writers and performers.
In 2015, I co-founded Bovine Cemetery, a regular short fiction performance night at Brighton’s Komedia theatre, described by Brighton Source as ‘the most exciting place for live original fiction’. Though Bovine Cemetery is currently on hiatus, enquiries are still welcome via firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow the links below to watch our Brighton Fringe Literary Funeral special, which I had the pleasure of compering in 2017:
Part One: featuring stories from Alice Ash, Jan Horbacz, Glenn Stevens, Nora Blascsok and Noam Bergman.
Part Two: featuring stories from Andrew J Lambie, Niall Stic, Pippa Says, Bill Parslow, Richard Moyse Fenning and Ben Tucker.
In 2018, I curated and compered Wordstock Brighton, a one-day festival of live literature and workshops as part of Brighton Fringe 2018. In 2019, I hosted Bovine Cemetery’s Big Fat Literary Olympics, a live literary quiz as part of Brighton Fringe 2019. Later that year I was invited to speak as part of City Reads’ Amongst Friends event alongside Charlene Alcott, Heidi James, Sarah Ann Juckes, Stephanie Lam, Rebecca Ley, Will Mabbitt, Craig Melvin, S.K. Perry and Kate Smith, where I shared my thoughts on Evelyn Waugh’s Vile Bodies.
As lockdown eases, I will again be available for compere and performance work. Do follow the Contact tab to the left if you’d like to make an enquiry.
