I am a freelance artist with over 25 years professional experience – a Showman, Story Teller, Songwriter and Workshop Sessions Supplier.
Down the years I have delivered projects for a number of leading companies, nationally and internationally but my web site lists my current menu of shows and workshops.
Alongside my solo work, you will also find out more about my company, Headzup, which is based in Barrow-in-Furness and specialises in entertaining and educative cabaret projects designed for schools and young audiences.
Parties and Family Celebrations
Looking for a birthday party, wedding or family celebration with a difference?
The Trunks Party Special
My party package includes a forty minute show featuring songs, stories and masses of audience participation, followed by thirty minutes of games and silliness before or after the party food
Classic stories rounded up, recycled and recounted for your enjoyment.
Trunks is a family friendly collection of songs, tales and routines accessible to all and can be performed in practically any situation or location. Trunks works as a roving walkabout show finding an audience anywhere and everywhere, but also as a static conventional ring show.
The show is performed acoustically and is therefore suitable for almost any venue, indoors or outside in your garden
For something truly original how about celebrating with a Ukulele party?
Children of any age can take part in this fun, easy activity but it is, however, recommended for children of 8 years and up
This is perfect for the whole family to share and enjoy and lasts 45 minutes
(Maximum 35 participants)
Learn some easy chords, write a silly song, then it’s time for the awesome grand finale where everything combines … songs, dancing and silliness
A unique party experience!

All I require is a minimum of 30″ doorway access and assistance with lifting if the venue has any stairways
Safe parking nearby would be required
Gacko has a full enhanced CRB check and public liability insurance.
Thanks for looking!
