BBC Radio 4 veteran, Henry Normal and literary enigma, Brian Bilston are set to bring their poetry and comedy show to Barrow this month.

The pair's performance at The Forum on February 19 follows sell-out shows in 2023 and propels the poets to performing in larger theatres for the first time.

Henry and Brian first met at the Laugharne Festival and first performed together in Morecambe last October.

Mr Bilston has been described as the 'Banksy of Poetry', maintaining a mysterious anonymity.

Despite his popularity, he continues to conceal his identity, making his performances an 'intriguing opportunity' to hear his work live.

Mr Normal has constantly toured with his evolving show since bowing out of TV and film production.

His 'distinctive style' is said to wrap up fun, humour, and poignancy, along with a profound reflection on love, life and family, that is 'as deeply moving as it is funny'.

The BAFTA award-winning writer has in print, 15 poetry books, including his forthcoming collection 'A Moonless Night', set for release on Valentine’s day, February 14, 2024.
