Hegley on Keats


"“Constant juggling of poetry, music and comedy created a unique and quirky one-man cabaret from a visually challenged Luton lad who's become an unlikely national treasure.” Norwich Evening News.

A welcome return for friend of the SPL, John Hegley. Come and hear old favourites about guillemots, glasses and dogs alongside poems from John’s brand-new pamphlet.

A Scarcity of Biscuit is a look at the letters (of John Keats) in the light of the poet's affinity with hats, family, medicine and celery. And also his association with kennels, the French and fig rolls.

Event will be in-person at the SPL only. The SPL is well ventilated and Covid protocols will be in place.

'John Hegley is to potatoes what Wordsworth has been to daffodils.' The Independent"
