Thick Richard has been pedaling his potty-mouthed poems at festivals and clubs up and down the land for the last 16 years. His cynical, lyrical, jet-black humour, intelligent wordplay, well-crafted verse, and occasionally acerbic, well-targeted comic attacks have earned him much respect from artists and audiences from Edinburgh to Glastonbury. Occasional support for Kate Tempest, Thick Richard was also presenter of BBC 6 Music’s Beat of the Day. A regular headliner of Hammer and Tongue nationwide poetry tours and is usually to be found performing a wide variety of live music and cabaret venues.

Thick or Wholemeal to his friends will be supported by local hipster folk-popsters Flatland and the Garage Flowers.

Not only Flowers and Poets but pies too…yes we’re hosting the event in the Birds Nest Cafe’ where your ticket admission will include a meal deal.
