Pre-pandemic I have performed at events across Yorkshire and post-pandemic, across the country at online events. My work in progress debut book and one-woman show titled; 'I'm a Poet and I Didn't Even Realise' was put on hold as the pandemic sent 2020 into a spin.

*BRAND NEW SHOW - COMING SOON*

I am now working on a new show; a series of monologues moulded from diary entries, current affairs headlines and photos from the year 2020.

'2020 - Life Begins' fuses 2020 current affairs including; The Global Pandemic, The Black Lives Matter Movement, the NHS and politics with themes of parenting, marriage, faith, and accessibility to deliver a funny yet emotional rollercoaster journey through the year that changed the world.

The show has content that will appeal to almost everyone from every walk of life and promises to engage with audiences on an emotional level.

"We'll laugh, we'll cry but most of all, we'll grow."
