Cheltenham Poetry Festival presents

Murray Lachlan Young

28 April

An evening of satirical soliloquy, rock-n-roll reverie and ditty as Murray Lachlan Young presents his stunning new live show - a delightful romp into the bizarre facets of fame, fashion, people, politics, and the space-time continuum; a no holds barred collection of work that echoes the great rhymers Edward Lear, Lewis Carroll and Gilbert and Sullivan, along with more contemporary influences such as Grandmaster Flash, Ian Dury and Tom Waits. This is unique stand up poetry/spoken word performance, from one of the very best in the business.

Ignoring the boundaries between poetry, rock-n-roll and comedy, Murray Lachlan Young's career has been a creative rollercoaster ride across three decades - from becoming the first poet to sign a £1m record contract in the late '90s to being current poet in residence at BBC6 music, via regular slots at The Glastonbury Festival, Latitude, Port Eliot, Womad, No 6 Festival and many more.

"Simply brilliant, hysterically funny and strangely moving" - Claudia Winkleman
