Poet John Clarke

ONE OF Britain’s best loved and most important poets and performers is set to perform at the Gardyne Theatre on Sunday, May 19, at 7.30 p.m.

John Cooper Clarke’s biting, satirical, political and very funny verse delivered in his rapid-fire performance style resonated with the punk movement that had begun to pick up speed in the ‘70s and saw him begin to draw huge crowds in his own right after touring with most of punk’s seminal and ground breaking bands including Sex Pistols, The Clash, Buzzcocks, The Fall and Elvis Costello, among others.

Continuing to write new work from his home, he has a plethora of new poems and monologues.

Tickets are priced at £15 or £13. For further information visit www.gardynetheatre.org.uk or telephone 01382 434940.
