About this event

Part stand-up, part-poetry, part storytelling: "Like watching John Cooper Clarke snog Pam Ayres while John Hegley watches" (BBC Radio). Spoken Word, Words and Wordplay! Gavin Robertson is Greg Byron - whose words engage on a range of subjects, from satirical to science, via modern life and comedy, with a smile, a grimace and a wry pointy finger! His 55-word prose can be twisted or absurd, his 'character portraits' use words to paint pictures of people. From witty to wistful, come join the playfulness and the passion! ★★★★★ "compelling to watch" - The Guardian. ★★★★★ "Byron is a Masterful performer" - Reviews Hub. ★★★★ "Byron is engaging, warm, offering each poem as if we were old friends" - Broadway Baby.

Important information:
NOTE: Performance on Friday March 9th rescheduled to Monday March 12th, 17:30.
