The pint drinking poet of his generation

Flamboyant, political and riotously funny, Luke Wright creates inventive poems with loads of heart. Part Essex wide boy, part dandy fop, he writes from the sidelines about small-town tragedies and national farce, then performs his work with snarl and spit. 

In Down the Pub with... you will see one of Britain’s most engaging performers where he belongs, spinning yards down the boozer. He’ll make you laugh, he’ll make you cry and he might even get a round in.

We are really thrilled to be able to work with Luke and The Inn Crowd project, who bring exceptional live events to rural pubs in Somerset.  An And thanks to the brave landlords who have stepped into this adventure with us – it promises to be a lot of fun.
