School Visits and Performances


John Foster has performed his poems in schools and libraries throughout the UK and is well-known for his performances as a dancing dinosaur and a rapping granny!

John is available for visits to schools and libraries within a 50 mile radius of his Oxfordshire home. His performance for juniors lasts approximately an hour and includes time for questions and answers about his poems and how he writes them.

His separate performance for infants includes action rhymes, chanting rhymes and counting rhymes for the children to join in as well as an explanation of what really happened to Humpty Dumpty and why Mary, Mary Quite Contrary was looking glum.

'What can I say! Thank you for such a super day. The children just loved hearing your poems as I am sure you could tell. They loved joining in... Poetry is coming to life in a big way.'   Binfield CE Primary School, Bracknell.
