James Carter visits book festivals, music festivals and libraries – as well as museums and arts centres – all over the UK. He is also a regular visitor/workshopper at the Roald Dahl Museum at Great Missenden in Buckinghamshire.
For the last few years, James has been a regular performer at the Sunday Times Oxford Literature Festival as well as the Off The Shelf Festival in Sheffield where he has visited libraries, hospitals, schools and has given INSET sessions to teachers and librarians.
In libraries and at book festivals, James gives two seperate public performances for children:
Hey Little Bug!
A gentle, fun and interactive session for 0–6 year olds and their parents. Action rhymes, music and poems aplenty full of bugs, bubbles, puddles, pirates, dinosaurs and travelling around the world – all of which feature in James’ brand new collection Hey, Little Bug! poems for little creatures.
Duration – ½hr
Journey To The Centre Of My Brain
Ever met an alien? James is probably the closest you’ll ever get. Come along for a madcap session from the quirkiest and liveliest poet and guitarist in town. See James perform some wild guitar music as well as a bunch of poems from his collections Journey To The Centre Of My Brain, GRRR! and Greetings, Earthings!. You'll hear poems on a range of wonderfully weird and superbly strange topics, from wolves to dragons, garden sheds to electric guitars, brains to woolly mammoths. Very much a family session, it’s perfect for 7-777 year olds. Why not bring along your air guitar and join in? Family writing workshop can be included in the session or as an extension to ’Journey To The Centre Of My Brain’.
Duration – up to 1hr
Negotiable and extremely reasonable, of course!
