** During the Covid-19 situation - my family and I are running a FREE weekly LIVE-stream Facebook Show - I’ve tried to re-create my normal ‘audience Shows’ in the comfort of our home....it’s fun, full of regular features, real Guinea Pigs and very popular : Sat 11am (BST) & all previous Shows can be seen as ‘catch-up’ : we’d be thrilled if you’d join us **
My name is Simon Holding and I live in Buckinghamshire, England. Over the last couple of years, I have been taking our pet Guinea Pigs into Schools and Nurseries. As well as showing the Guinea Pigs to the children, I give a short informative, educational, light-hearted talk to suit the audience age-range. The key message is Animal Welfare - I think, a very important educational requirement in this day and age.
I have four aims for each Show - to educate, to inform, to amuse and to entertain. Through a mix of props, information and picture boards and lots of audience interaction and involvement - I achieve this. What I do is easy to copy, BUT much harder to actualy deliver ! As well as the Guinea Pigs, I also have lots of Public Performing experience and have presented at Dog Shows, Talent Shows, and Open Air Cinema’s.
As someone who has owned Guinea Pigs for many years, I feel that they are perfect animals to take into Schools and Nurseries - once the information side of the ‘show’ is completed, the Guinea Pigs then come out, and in a controlled environment, the children (if they wish) can stroke the Guinea Pigs - the children sit in a circle and we go from child to child with each Guinea Pig.
