Once upon a time there was a magical Portsmouth fairy

Have your say

Awhile ago I was one of several awesome authors asked to contribute a story to a forthcoming book of Portsmouth Fairy Tales (for grown-ups only), so here’s my uber-plug.

Saturday night is the book’s launch, so if you’re interested in meeting some authors here’s an invitation to the Groundlings Theatre at 8pm. It’s down near The Hard, Portsea, and is where Charles Dicken’s mother went into labour with him.

During the day I will be running a fiction workshop in Southsea library (3-5pm e-mail culturekiddo@gmail.com if you’re interested in a free place to work on epic fairy stories) and on Sunday I’ll be taking part in a promenade performance – meet at Portsmouth Guildhall at 2pm. So there you go, that’s your weekend of culture all sorted.
