John runs workshops on the history or the Pearly Kings & Queens and the traditional Cockney songs. He teaches the children to perform a little play 'Henry and his Friends' about the first Pearly King, Henry Croft.
The children sing the songs with him and he remains in full Pearly King costume throughout the day. John will conduct a half hour assembly if required.
In recent months he has conducted successful workshops and shows at Newham Primary School, Barrow Hedges Primary School and Jerusalem Church of England Primary School Hackney. The workshops can be in half or full day format.
John has long experience of working with children, holds a full CRB Certificate and has a music diploma from the Open University.
