Join star of ‘The Archers’ and two-time UK National Poetry Slam champion, Ben Norris, on a short tour of the heart.

Fusing spoken-word and music with his trademark storytelling panache, the Notts-born writer-performer and former Theatr Clwyd writer-in-residence will be sharing stories of lockdown, heartbreak and going home, trialling brand new work as well as sharing pieces from his back catalogue.

Armed with several probably-illegible notebooks, a loop pedal, and a refurbished macbook paid for by the government's coronavirus self-employment income support scheme, Ben anticipates exploring themes as diverse as family, general sadness, lockdown sadness, grief, heartbreak, other miscellaneous sadnesses, memory, family, being from The Midlands, and the art of effective list-making.
