John Hegley - The Sound of Paint Drying

24 April

John Hegley has captivated audiences all over the country and been described in Time Out as "fabulously funny" and in The Sunday Times as "scandalously talented".

Artworks created by the poet, his native French father and some of the greats of the public galleries are looked at, sniffed at and listened to, in this entertaining song and (a little bit of) dancing spectacular. Suitable for anyone who can attempt to draw a bicycle.

"Just because he is one of the funniest men alive, don't underestimate his dedicated gentleness." - Adrian Mitchell.
