I have given poetry readings and performed throughout the UK including Ledbury Poetry Festival, Royal Shakespeare Theatre (Stratford Upon Avon), Southbank Centre, Arts Council England, Latitude, the Big Chill, O2 Wireless Festival, British Council London, the British Library, the Barbican, and Somerset House amongst many others.

I was part of the ‘Speechless’ UK tour, a British Council and Apples & Snakes commission, which culminated in a sellout show at the Queen Elizabeth Hall as part of Poetry International.

My show ‘Growing Up An Alien’, produced by Apples & Snakes and supported by Arts Council England, premiered at the Southbank Centre’s London Literature festival before touring the UK. A book of the poems from the show was published by Tall Lighthouse.

I was commissioned by Phrased & Confused through The Hub and Arts Council England to write and perform ‘Different Words for Snow’ with musician Janie Armour. This show toured the UK and was released as a CD.

I toured with What We Should Have Said, a poetry and music show produced by BAFTA nominated Stuart Silver, with performances in Wales, London and at the Ledbury Poetry Festival.

I toured with Canadian poet Heather Taylor in our show ‘Accents on Words’ produced by Tall Lighthouse.

In 2003/4 I performed as part of Renaissance One’s Kin national spoken word tour.

I performed in the Apples and Snakes ‘Writers on The Storm’ tour in 2002/3.
