what people say about Charlie



I just wanted to thank you for helping us at Surrey's libraries. I have had wonderful feedback from all libraries concerned.
So thank you, Best wishes".

Paddocks Primary School, Newmarket, Suffolk.


Thank you for a fantastic day!
The feedback was excellent from the staff and everyone was incredibly impressed by your skills with our children particularly as you'd never met them before. They got so much out of your sessions and will remember this for a long time.
The combination of drama, music, listening skills and interaction was just what they needed and their response showed how much you drew them in.
It was a particularly difficult day as well because some of the morning children were pretty high at going away that afternoon for their residential trip and the last session was with children who'd just come back so they were tired and potentially quite difficult. Yet they were perfect with you thanks to your skills.
So, once again, thank you for an exhausting day (for you!) We hope to see you again".

Special School, East Sussex

The staff were raving about your storytelling ... and we'll book you for the same time next year. The children were so keen on your performances - a couple of quotes: 'I've never laughed so much in my whole life.' from a seven year old whose mum is away in Iran at the moment and he is missing her. 'That was brilliant!' and 'I wish I could tell stories like that.'
Long may you continue to convert people to the power of storytelling"!

Dear Charlie Wilson, I am writing to say a huge thank you for coming in to share your stories with us. I especially liked the stories you did in the afternoon with just my class. I never thought you would be as good as you were. I thought your songs were super and when you got people up to be characters, it made it 105% more realistic. I really, really enjoyed it. I hope you will come back".

Dear Charlie, Crick-crack! I have not forgotten you since you visited the children at Heene First School, Worthing, about six years ago! We thought you were wonderful. I bought a copy of Spinning Delights on tape and have played it to all my classes ever since. I am now a deputy head in Devon, still playing the tape to many delighted children here, and wondered if I could buy a copy of Spinning Delights and also your new recording, Pass it On, in CD. I wish I could book you for our school but think it may be a little too far for you! We'll have to make do with more of your stories on the stereo. Thank you for all the smiling faces your stories have ignited"!

Many thanks, Lisa Wallis-Reep Barnstaple, Devon
