Virtual Visits

Because we are in uncertain times but many schools still wish to organise author visits, Gareth is now offering an extended range of virtual visits.

A full virtual day costs £200, saving you £150.

A half-day of two sessions will cost £150, saving you £100

One hour is only £50, saving you £100.

A virtual day would run something like this:

An assembly (if required).

4 x 60-minute sessions, probably consisting of a 45-minute session, followed by a 15 minute Q&A.

The structure is flexible and negotiable.

Available sessions

Most sessions include a slideshow and videos as well as Gareth talking and interacting directly with the children with the teacher facilitating turns.
