DETAILS

Venue: Acorn Cabaret Bar

With a USP as the ‘bus driver poet’ and a first volume of poetry, A View from the Cab: the poetry and musings of a bus driver in Cornwall, which quickly sold out and had to be reprinted, Gray Lightfoot has broken down perceptions of what a poet can be. But what kind of poet is he now? In this show, Gray uses his own work to explore the borderlines between ‘serious’ poetry and entertainment, showing that poetry can be funny but still carry a serious message…hopefully!
