About my entertainments and quizzes...
A unique entertaining and inspiring hour of, sometimes, thought provoking and often humorous content built around a theme. ‘Grandadssongs’ has now over 30 presentations for schools and now 11 for Adults. New themes can be created for you and existing themes tailored to your requirement.
Sandwell Museums and Art Galleries and over twenty-five schools and nurseries have used ‘Grandadssongs’.
Over the past few years I have mainly worked with U3As, W.Is. Townswomen’s Guilds, Probus and other independent groups and organisations using ‘Grandadssongs’ presentations specially adapted for adult audiences, many on more than one occasion.
I am now available to do some of my presentations by Zoom. Notably picture this 1 and 2 and Nowt so queer as Folk
I charge £2 per head for groups up to 25 in number, £50 for groups 25-50 in number and fees for groups over 50 in number are negotiable.
I would ask large groups of 75 or more to bear this in mind when they offer me a fee. I charge 25p per mile beyond 10 miles from my home, however, this figure can be negotiable.
Quizzes last about two and a half hours so are more expensive at £100 but if the cause is right and I don’t have to create an entirely new quiz (this can take months!) then I have been known only to take expenses.
