Comics and Cakes make the world go round!

The Lost and Found tour recently arrived in sunny North Somerset, at the invitation of The Churchill Academy. We were due to speak to a number of classes, starting with a full session in the main hall for the entirety of year 8.

Now I don't care what anyone thinks, the sight of 260 12-year-olds crammed into a hot room on the very last day of term before the Easter break is enough to give even the most seasoned of performers the willies!  But Lorenzo and I are professionals (ahem) and the kids were amazing. Truly one of our funniest shows, and most enjoyable visits to date ... but do I say that every time?


There was even some news coverage - I wonder how many local newspapers our silly mugs have appeared in now?...

The effort that some schools take over their author visits leaves us speechless. Melanie McGilloway set a new high standard with her phenomenal displays, pre-visit prep and best of all a tray of Rocky Road cakes ... needless to say we stuffed ourselves full to bursting! Wow...

Many thanks to Melanie and all the staff and pupils of Churchill who helped make this visit such a pleasurable experience. We look forward to returning in the future!
