Down The Pub with Luke Wright

June 7 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

- £8

Tickets £8 in advance – available behind the bar and online.

(Tickets £10 on the door – subject to availability)

Flamboyant, political and riotously funny, Luke Wright creates inventive poems with loads of heart. Part Essex wide boy, part dandy fop, he writes from the sidelines about small-town tragedies and national farce, then performs his work with snarl and spit.

Since 2006 he has written and performed nine spoken word shows and two verse plays, touring them to top literary and arts festivals. Alongside his own shows, Luke is John Cooper-Clark’s regular support act, performing at venues such as The London Palladium and The Palace Theatre in Manchester. He’s won a 4Talent Award, a Stage Award, a Fringe First Award, a Saboteur Award, and and NFBC short film competition at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival.

“One of the funniest and most brilliant poets of his generation” – The Independent
“Cool poems” – Patti Smith
“Pulsating, poetic storytelling” – The Guardian
“Performance poetry’s key revivalist” – Metro
