Some pics and video from our singalongs today featuring special guest, the legendary children's musician, Stephen Grocott.
Delighted to return to the Rose Theatre auditorium with my latest big show for under sixes: UNA'S JUNGLE JIVE! I've got lots of new music as well as props and percussion instruments to create a wonderful jungle atmosphere with rainforest rhythms, animal action rhymes and safari songs! Hope you can dig out your favourite animal costume and join me! Full details and booking below.
Autumn is here and Hallowe'en is just around the corner, so now is as good a time as any to announce my next big Under Sixes Show at Rose Theatre Kingston...
SPOOKY AUTUMN SHOW
Saturday 14th October, 10:30am, in the main Auditorium at Rose Theatre
Let's boogie on down and get our scary on as we celebrate the Hallowe'en season! Dress up in your ghastliest garb and join me for spooky songs, dastardly ditties and freakish fun! Last year this show was a huge hit - check out my photo gallery and YouTube video for a reminder of the fun we had!
Tickets are £6 and can be booked directly from the Rose - see link below. So tell all your friends, get cracking on that creepy costume and hopefully I'll see all my favourite little ghouls and boys there!

St. Patrick's Day is coming up next week and I'm really looking forward to sharing with you some of the songs of my childhood. ☘️
I'm very excited to be collaborating with my friend Shirley, who for many years ran Yo Baby! world music classes for little ones in Surbiton - some of you may know her already! She's now based in West Sussex and I will be travelling there on Wed 15th where Shirley and I will perform together in her Magical Yurt.
Shirley will then join me at The Rose Theatre on Thursday 16th to showcase some of her many talents. Shirley plays a variety of Irish musical instruments, having grown up in a very musical Irish family - some pics above from when I joined her St. Patrick's Day classes last year. You are in for a treat!!!
I have a great selection of Irish songs and tunes lined up for you on both Thursday and Friday, including:
Make sure and wear your brightest green and join me for lots of diddley-eyedey-o tunes, a little bit of Riverdancing and a chance to play the bodhrán! We'll also raise a toast to St. Patrick! (Nothing heavy, just some apple juice in a shot glass ☘️)
These classes are always popular and booking up quickly already - don't miss out!
I'm back in the main auditorium of the Rose Theatre Kingston with a new big show for under sixes - FUN ON THE FARM! It's on Saturday 28th January with two shows, 10am and 11am. Hope you'll join me for the moo-sical merriment! Tickets available directly from the Rose here.
As the year comes to an end, I'd like to say a big THANK YOU to all my singalongers! We've had a great year together and I wish you and all your families a happy, exciting, relaxed and restful Christmas. To the little ones having their first Christmas this year, and the bigger ones who are already on very close terms with Santa and the elves, I hope you have a wonderful time and find something fabulous under the Christmas tree!
Term starts again on Thursday 5th / Friday 6th January at Rose Theatre Kingston which will be the venue for classes on both days. My earlybird offer still applies up to midnight today, Friday 16th December, so if you want to grab it, get in there fast! I've also got my 3 for 2 offer on CDs running until end of day today, in case you need any last minute gifts for little music lovers!
I'll sign off now with a few pics from last week's Santa singalong at the Rose. Now to get cracking on my own Christmas preparations! Lots of love to you all and see you in 2017!
Delighted to be back this week at YMCA Surbiton and Rose Theatre Kingston - if you can't wait until Thursday or Friday, here's a little something to whet your appetite in the meantime! I've uploaded some videos from our Jungle-themed singalongs in June of this year. Hope you enjoy them!

Calling all Rose Theatre singalongers! Just to let you know that classes on June 10th and 17th and July 8th and 15th will take place at an alternative venue as The Rose is not available as a result of performances taking place there.
The alternative venue is
Cornerstone Hub Hall,
234A Canbury Park Road,
Kingston upon Thames,
It's a lovely big space so its perfect for the classes. Map below for your reference.
During these weeks, I'll run only one class, at 10am.
Classes at YMCA Surbiton continue as normal.
I'm thrilled to announce that my WILD WEST shows will take place on Saturday, 23rd July, at Rose Theatre Kingston as part of their Under Sixes programming. It was so disappointing to have to cancel the original date back in February when I was ill, and I'm hoping you'll all be able to make it this time for some rip-roarin', yodel-ay-dee-hoo fun!
These shows are quite similar to my singalongs, the main difference being the size of the venue and the seating arrangements on pit cushions in the auditorium, and also the fact that they're open to all under sixes. My previous gig of this size and type - PIRATE themed - back in autumn 2015 was a huge success, and I'm really looking forward to bringing another great show to you all!
Saturday, 23rd July with performances at 10am, 11.30am, 1pm, duration 40 minutes.
Tickets are available directly from Rose Theatre:
