Spoken word: Tony Walsh on Thursday 30th March 2023

Iconic performance poet Tony Walsh is returning to Preston for an intimate gig at iconic music venue The Ferret.

Tony Walsh is often billed as a ‘giant’ of the UK poetry scene – not least because he stands at two metres tall. Since 2004, he has performed everywhere from grass-roots poetry gigs to international literature festivals, but his work came to worldwide attention in May 2017 when his poem ‘This Is The Place’ was broadcast globally from the vigil for victims of the Manchester arena bomb.

An evening with Tony Walsh is a rip-roaring rock and roller-coaster ride from a profoundly inspiring artist at the very top of his game.

Forget what you imagined a poetry night could be and expect belly-laughs, tears and everything in between from this big-hearted performer who often leaves audiences on their feet, dazzled and breathless.
