“In Nottingham, in early May
I’ll be on, fairly late in the day:
with a verse and a quip,
and with seats that can tip
in the Circle, after the play.”

John Hegley is an interactive lyricist with 30 years’ experience at the Edinburgh Fringe, where some years ago he was nominated for the Comedy Award, but the show is not just joking.

An exuberance of songs, drawings and poems and baroque dance steps with material encompassing furniture, fig rolls, fisher-birds and a trip to Rotherham Library.

The show draws on the audience’s singing and movement potential and upon pieces in the book of this name, in which reside the author’s family alongside John Keats, Giacometti and some Daleks. Suitable for some insomniac nine year olds.

This event is run in partnership with Nottingham Poetry Festival – 26 April to 5 May 2019: Ten days of word jams, poetry slams, performances, songs and readings from some of the most renowned poets in the country, all across the city.  For more information please visit
