Charlie studied Drama: Theatre, Film and Television at the University of Bristol, graduating in 2008.
She learnt about wagon theatre (theatre on wagons) and always thought it sounded quite dangerous. She’s glad that times have moved on and there are more practical ways to share your work.
As a drama graduate Charlie is not afraid to stand up and laugh at herself and believes it is an important message for children – to see adults having fun. Charlie has recorded some of her poems and uploaded them to YouTube, where there are no rickety wooden wagons in sight.
Listen here to Charlie talking to Leigh Chambers on Cambridge105 radio about her book, ‘There’s a Poem in my Dungarees!’
Charlie co-hosts a Podcast with her husband, Tobias. It is a family friendly feast of positive news stories from around the globe.
