Come and have a tour around two marvellous minds via the vehicles of poetry, story telling, jokes and general silliness.

Clare Ferguson-Walker

Clare Ferguson-Walker is unique. She is an award winning poet, comedienne, sculptor and singer.Her explosive second collection “Chrysalis”, published by Clockwork Moth, lays bare the poet’s soul and takes the reader on an intimate journey laced with humour and intelligent humane observation.

“Hilarious, touching and incredibly clever” Metro

“Don’t know how Clare can get up on stage and be so effortlessly funny and engaging, I love her stuff” Brian Bilson

Robin Ince

Robin Ince is best known as the host of the Radio 4 series The Infinite Monkey Cage with Brian Cox, now on its twenty-ninth series.

They have been on three international arena tours performing his poetry in front of 14,000 people at the London O2.

He was also awarded Author of the Year by The Booksellers’ Association in 2022.

He has written books including Bibliomaniac, the Importance of Being Interested, I’m a Joke and So Are You and his next, Normally Weird and Weirdly Normal is out October 2024. He beat John Cooper Clarke on Pointless Celebrities, but it was a close run thing.

His most recent live show, MELONS, included punching a melon until it exploded, but he cannot promise such things here.
