Relaxed evening of poetry & spoken word with guest Jonny Fluffypunk.
Join us for a relaxed evening of poetry and spoken word, featuring a performance by guest poet Jonny Fluffypunk and a showcase of outstanding local talent.
An economic refugee from the London hinterland, Jonny speaks words out loud that fuse bittersweet autobiography, threadbare philosophy and surreal whimsy in an act which has established him as a firm favourite at gigs, festivals, arts centres and housing benefit offices up and down the country. He has produced two books of writings- The Sustainable Nihilists' Handbook and Poundland Rimbaud- both published by Burning Eye Books- and two solo no-fi stand-up spoken word shows, Man Up, Jonny Fluffypunk- One Man's Struggle with Late-Onset Responsibility (which spent 2015/16 touring around theatres, garden sheds, summer houses, empty shops and Britain's other ad-hoc performance spaces in a blatant championing of homespun DIY culture) and How I Came To Be Where I Never Was, all about unrequited love, trains, and being the first punk in the village, developed with Strike A Light in Gloucester.
