Videos

At theBigBuzz I bring poetry to life. What does that mean, exactly? Well, have a look through these videos and you’ll start to get a flavour. Or head over to my YouTube channel to see more of my videos.

STOP PRESS: During the COVID-19 pandemic I’ve been creating a series of special ‘learning through laughter, rhythm and rhyme’ nature poem videos to help you and your kids/pupils learn more about the minibeasts and birds you’re likely to see where you are. And there are some poetry videos about the seasons too. They’re labelled ‘Lockdown Nature’ – but they’re equally valid out of lockdown! Watch these videos here.
