John Hegley Presents “Peace, Love and Potatoes”
Thursday 8th July
doors 7.30pm Curtain up 8pm
John Hegley is one of the UKs foremost performance poets. A regular for BBC radio and a headliner in festivals around the country including Edinburgh, he has produced ten books of verse and prose, two CDs and one mug. His poems manage to take the minutiae of modern life like dogs, potatoes and handkerchiefs spinning them into a philosophical framework. Acerbic, fond and funny, John Hegley also has the rare distinction of having written a limerick about Frome and rhymed it accurately with “broom”. For this alone, he should be rewarded with the freedom of the town. He also describes himself as an “urgent” ukulele player.
