Involving cakes, compliments, phone boxes and Billy Bragg teaching her how to play “The Milkman of Human Kindness” in a cupboard at the BBC.
This is a comedy about how, despite what we are told about the state of the world, there is more love than hate, more hope than fear, more good than bad. All this plus a chance to win a million pounds (really)
‘A thought-provoking, hilarious and disarmingly honest show’ - Daily Express
“You may walk into the performance sceptical, but I defy you not to walk out and not want to do at least one small act of kindness…honest and very funny” - What’s On Stage
366 Days of Kindness is a manifesto we all should live by; the antidote to our busy lives and an absolute delight of a performance.” - Ellen Carr, A Younger Theatre

It's not really about me

It's about what I do: singing songs, writing lyrics, playing guitar, making guitars. These things I do for enjoyment, but there is a joy in reaching a level that people recognise as "professional". Home is New Ash Green in Kent and I have been performing in the local area, off and on, for many years. Now, through this website, the hope is to spread the enjoyment a little further. That's all you need to know really but this page gives a bit more history and background.
