"This was the first performance visit I've organised for Norton College and now I can't wait for the next. Craig Bradley was a brilliant find, such enthusiasm, such engagement with his audience (young and old). Our pupils were literally rolling with laughter, he lit up the library. Craig brought poetry to life for our Year 7 pupils and we'll definitely be getting him back into school at every opportunity."

Kim Brown - Learning Centre Manager:Norton College 6th July 2010
