DATES for your diary - witch out and about!
The Exeter Authors Association, of which I'm a member, is putting on a comprehensive series of free events at libraries in Devon during 2018. The group covers the vast majority of genres, so there is a huge range of books on offer to suit pretty much every taste. There will be the chance to meet and chat with the authors, listen to talks about their work, take part in workshops and buy books (which can be personalised - just ask!)
Therefore, WITCH has several outings this year as the basis for a variety of talks I will be giving at these events. The first is at Exeter Central Library on Saturday 31st March 2018. I will be reading my children's book at 10am and giving a talk on WITCH from 11.30-12.30. The talks, workshops and pop-up bookshop will all be in the Rougemont Room at the library from 10am-4pm and you can drop in and out as much as you like during the course of the day. As soon as the full programme is finalised, I will add the details here, but for now, here is the poster for my WITCH talk.
If you would like me to speak at your venue, please get in touch via the contact form.
Here is the list of WITCH tour dates from 2017.
2018 looks like it will be the year for Theatre in Education, as all our bookings so far are from universities, who want us to bring the show to their students to complement the witchcraft module in their degree and demonstrate one of the many ways history can be used creatively.
Would you like Circle of Spears Productions to bring WITCH to a venue near you? Do you have a venue and want something different and unusual? If so, please get in touch using my contact form. The show is staged very simply with minimal tech requirements and can fit into pretty much any space.
