John's show All Hail The Snail has been a mainstay of the 2018 schedule. Go here to find an interview posted in Canary Wharf Kids where he discusses the show and offers advice to children interested in creative writing and their parents. And go here to listen to John talking to Nick Coffer about the show on BBC Three Counties Radio. You will need to sign into BBC Iplayer.

John's "Winter Warmer" gig at Smokey Joe's in Cheltenham on Saturday 8th December, which had been postponed, has been reinstated, and the gig at the Square & Compass in Swanage, originally scheduled for Wednesday 12th December, has now been moved to Wednesday the 19th. Sorry for all the chopping and changing! And don't be alarmed at the lack of January dates, John is doing a lot of teaching that month!
