Verse Festival 2020: Luke Wright @ Stamford Theatre
Apr 30 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

We are delighted to be supporting the Stamford Verse Festival 2020; celebrating poetry and the spoken word over a week or so of absolutely fantastic events. You may see our little stall at some of the events, please do not hesitate to come and say hello; we always love an opportunity to talk books and poetry!

There was a collective gnashing of teeth and beating of breasts across the land when Wrighty didn’t get the royal nod to take up the position of Poet Laureate this year. Still, he’s an irrepressible sort of chap, so he’s bought his own sherry and hit the road with a show the critics are calling his best yet.

Luke Wright is on a mission to write poems to unite a nation divided by austerity and Brexit. Can it be done? Can one poet ever really represent an entire nation? Big-hearted and quick witted, Wright’s poems have been lauded by everyone from Patti Smith to The Libertines.

A Fringe First and Stage Award winner, Wright is truly a wordsmith and raconteur at the top of his game.
