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 8 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.
My fees are £50 for groups over 25 and smaller groups at £2 per head. I would ask large groups of 75 or more to bear this in mind when they offer me a fee. I don’t usually charge expenses within the West Midlands. Outside I charge 20p per mile, 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.
