Guy regularly visits schools, festival and libraries. His event is an energetic combination of interactive stand-up, pictures, props and an occasional bit of dressing up thrown in for good measure! His high-octane event explores his childhood aspirations and inspirations and includes animated readings from his books. Guy is happy to travel far and wide to speak to large or small groups (years 3-6.)
"The visit from Guy Bass was one of the greatest days at the school… he left the children feeling truly inspired to read and to write. His presentation to the children was fantastic. He then spent 3 hours signing and illustrating every book… with humour and a smile on his face. It was a truly excellent day for the school and worth every single penny. In the words of the children, "He was awesome!""
James Malone, Teacher, Hampton Junior School
"The joy of reading seems ever more joyous when Guy rolls into a school and unleashes his own special brand of reading motivation. Portsmouth School Library Service is delighted to have worked with Guy on more than ten different events in the past two years."
Peter Bone, Library Services Manager, Portsmouth Libraries
"An enormous 'thank you' to Guy from us all for taking part in the ReadingZone Festival. His event was wonderful and the children were really buzzing afterwards, and we're getting some great feedback from the schools that took part."
Caroline Horn, ReadingZone
"I can't recommend Guy highly enough. Our pupils loved him... His presentation was both incredibly funny and inspiring, and the increased enthusiasm for reading and writing in the weeks after his visit was very apparent. His professionalism, friendliness and flexibility made the visit an absolute pleasure for the staff as well. Thank you for such a fun afternoon!"
Joe Shepherd, Edgewick Primary
"Thanks for another fantastic day of events! Guy has become a firm
favourite. Guy's events and books both appeal to and entertain across KS2. We would heartily recommend Guy to anyone considering booking an author event for their school, or indeed any group of children!”
Hannah Plom, Hampshire Schools Library Service
"We had an absolutely amazing morning with Guy. The children and staff chuckled and smiled about the event for the rest of our Book Week. Guy made it very special by spending time with each child during the signing, which we really appreciated.”
Carole Pugh, Merdon Junior School
"It was the most entertaining visit I've ever organised. Such funny books and my less keen boys lap them up and then I can get them to try other stuff once I've got them hooked on reading."
Dawn Finch, Librarian, Whitefields Junior School
"The children were ecstatic following your visit. It really was such an enjoyable experience, with a personable insight into the mind of a celebrated author.
You certainly made everyone laugh and smile! The whole event was fabulous and both myself and the rest of the school are truly grateful.”
Michelle Holland-Washington, Gatten & Lake Primary School
"I had a fab time. Thank you for being so funny. I love your book, it is the best!"
Abigail, Beech Hyde School
"Thank you for coming and making me laugh. You are amazing!"
Megan, Beech Hyde School
"Our children loved Guy's talk. They were rolling around laughing one minute and listening enthralled the next. Our children were y2-y6 and all got a lot out of it."
Anja Tyler, Beninton Primary School
"Dear Guy Basst, I like you because you are sometimes funny."
