Last weekend saw my first public appearance in character since lockdown. We’ve had to adapt the business to our virtual teaching resources over the past few months. Next week will be our first virtual Q&A session – this will be between a primary school in Loughborough and a Viking. There is also our first physical product in development (hopefully being trialled early 2021).
However, being able to create (socially distanced) engagements with people at Newark Book Festival was really refreshing. It’s good to support local causes especially during this challenging time. Although I couldn’t pose for photos, tell stories or offer any elaborate demonstrations due to government guidelines, I hope I supported the festival in a small way and brought a smile to somebody’s face. Even if they were just wondering ‘who is this idiot?’
