About James Haddow

James Haddow is the Taxi Driver Poet and for more than 16 years he was writing and reciting poetry to his passengers, entertaining them with his rhymes on life and love as he drove them around rural Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. A seizure forced him to retire from driving in 2013 and he then resettled on the South coast when love came knocking at his door. James now spends his time writing and performing his poetry whenever and wherever he can, reliving his journeys and encounters along the way. His style is light-hearted, casual and comical, his delivery is crisp and accomplished. He is currently on the Speakers Lists for the WI Federations of Wiltshire, Dorset, Somerset, Devon, Avon, Oxford, Berkshire, Surrey and Hampshire. Beyond that, he is just as happy with U3A, Rotary, Roundtable, Guilds, Golf Clubs, private bookings and dinner parties, whether they are held at home, at work, or in local pubs or restaurants. His fee is £75 + 30p/mile travel . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . (£25 maximum) and he is very happy to consider last minute bookings. Merchandise includes books, CDs, and framed Poetry Prints.
