Sunday, 28th March, 2010, 7.30pm, £3 (£2 Student/OAP)

The Fox,

Leamington Spa

Each month we also invite a fabulous guest performance poet and this month we have the absolutely brilliant Jonny Fluffypunk. Jonny is a seasoned and popular performer at gigs, festivals, schools and, on one occasion, in the bowels of a decommissioned Navy minesweeper. Armed with his trusty banjolele, he’s taken his blend of poems, surreal banter, short songlets and mysterious ‘other things’ to stages as far afield as Aberdeen and the Isle of Wight; Aberystwyth and Southend-on-Sea. Winner of Poetry Slams in Brighton, Bristol, Brixton, Lydney and Ledbury Poetry Festival, Jonny has also co-written and co-starred in 3 acclaimed spoken word shows in the Brighton Festival Fringe and has also had his paintings exhibited several times.

Jonny co-hosts and co-organises Hammer & Tongue slam poetry nights, first in Brighton and now in Bath, and is a committee member of Don’t Feed The Poets, Hammer & Tongue and Stop All The Clocks poetry promotion organisations. He regularly provides workshops of various shapes and sizes to schools, youth groups and adult education centres amongst others and, as a keen evangelist for the bicycle - one of humanity’s greatest successes - Jonny is part of the Hammer & Tongue Pedal Powered Poetry team, providing workshops and performance space featuring their pedal-powered stage and lighting rig.

We are also extremely fortunate to see the return of our very own MC from India - the fantastic Angry George!!
