Ledbury Poetry Festival 2013- Bang Said The Gun! : John Osborne, Daniel Cockrill, Robert Auton, Martin Galton, Peter Hayhoe
They were so good last year they've been invited back. An evening of foot-stomping, bean-shaking, arm-waving poetry – that may just lift the roof off the Burgage.
Enter the Raw Meat Stew Golden Gun Award (Open mic - sign up in advance at the Festival Box Office). This could be the verbal romp you’ve been waiting for!
‘Bang Said the Gun is wonderful: a vortex of energy and enthusiasm’ (Andrew Motion).
John's novel Radio Head (Simon & Schuster) was published in 2007 and re-printed in 2009. His second novel The Newsagent's Window (Simon & Schuster) was published in 2010. He is a member of award winning poetry collective Aisle16 who headline festivals all over the world.
