Tony Walsh on Thursday 30th September 2021

A former Poet in Residence for the world-renowned Glastonbury Festival, Manchester poet Tony Walsh (aka Longfella) has taken his words to rock festival and stadium main stages, to national television events, major sporting occasions and a standing ovation at a BAFTA awards ceremony.

Along the way, he has picked up a host of celebrity fans and commissions from The Guardian, The Observer, Channel 4 News, The Imperial War Museum, the Lake District National Park and many times by the BBC.

With his second full collection underway and a newly-signed three book deal with Hachette Children's recently announced, Tony was awarded an Honorary Doctorate by the University of Salford in 2018.

“Now a national hero” (The Guardian) having 'stunned millions of people' (Huffington Post) with his iconic performance after the Manchester arena bomb in May 2017, international audiences are now discovering what has been an open secret for over 15 years: a performance from 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 set could be and expect belly-laughs, tears and everything in between from this stunning, big-hearted performer who often leaves audiences on their feet, dazzled and breathless. Think that you won't enjoy a poetry night? Think again!
