Oliver Skyes is a performer and storyteller who was one of our Artist Imagination Fund Artists in 2021/2022. He is currently touring a selection of our member venues with his one-man family show ‘Alfie’s First Fight’ which you can book tickets for here.


As well as performing, Oliver has just launched his new children’s book ‘Fishing For Rainbows’. Which he is also developing into a storytelling show after testing the story out with school children who responded enthusiastically and gave really valuable feedback.


‘Fishing For Rainbows’ follows 12-year-old Kezia and her twin brothers, Duke and Danior, who are growing up in a single parent family after the death of their mum. While her brothers regularly fish with their dad, Kezia stays at home, cooking and cleaning, until one day she is called upon to prove what she can really do with a fishing rod!


It’s an empowering story of a female hero who saves the day and proves wholeheartedly that girls can fish too!

Perfect for fans of Jacqueline Wilson, Anthony McGowan and Phil Earle!
