'A huge thank you for coming to Kensington last week to share The Liberators with the children. They were all transfixed during your reading and many of them have rushed off to buy their own copy.'
Thomas' Kensington 

'They were gripped.  And the interactive bit for the younger ones was great.'
Ravenstone School, Gloucester Road. 

'Thank you so much for coming in today and giving so much of your time and energy to help the young creative minds of Grey Coats! Your lesson was fantastic and a lot of them used what you had taught to write some brilliant beginnings to stories after lunch.' Greycoats Hospital School, Victoria

'We all really enjoyed the morning. Various staff reported quite a 'buzz' around the school as the boys spoke about the readings, meeting you and having their books signed!'
Ludgrove School, Berkshire



The author sharing a joke.
'The boys obviously loved listening to the novel and talking to you and I was told this morning about a rather reluctant reader found in dorm avidly glued to The Liberators.'
Pilgrims, Winchester

'Thank you so much for yesterday. The girls really enjoyed your visit.'
St Teresas, Surrey

'Thank you again for your visit today. The feed-back from the boys has been most positive and I have no doubt that many will now be asking their parents to purchase your books!'
Christchurch Cathedral School, Oxford

'We all enjoyed meeting you and I am extremely grateful to you for making the effort to come and give a splendid talk.'
Dorset House Preparatory School, West Sussex

What people are saying:

"I thoroughly enjoyed the event today.  It was packed, informative, entertaining and very good value for money.  Philip Womack was fantastic - so passionate and inspiring and he totally succeeded in making a very erudite and even possibly dry subject accessible to a total novice like myself." J.P on How To Read Greek Tragedy


Carolyn on The Guide to Greek Mythology: The perfect engaging venue and the perfect speaker time flew as did Phillip a wildly enthusiastic and hugely knowledgeable speaker a conveyor of knowledge at whistle-stop speed i wrote copious notes as his enthusiasm was infectious..all delivered with humour and engagement. ... Marvellous evening ..time flew .learnt so much and now hope to Bluff with the best of them. *****

Philip & Debra:  A fascinating talk by Philip Womack whose knowledge, enthusiasm and humour made a complex subject very understandable, and left you keen to learn more. *****  Steve

Kirsty:  One of the most fun talks I've been to in recent years. A brilliant and entertaining evening at the London Sketch Club. The venue itself is a nod to historic London and provided a unique backdrop to this lively and informative event. The speaker had an encyclopaedic knowledge of his subject and the talent to present it so that even a complete Greek Mythology novice - like myself - was able to understand the complexities of ancient times. I walked away with a head full of knowledge and not a clue how to use it. A great evening. ****
