Half Moon presents


John Hegley: All Hail the Snail (and other creatures)


6th February 1.30 & 5pm


Join poet John Hegley as he takes us on a humorous journey through his living library of poems, songs, stories and animal drawings. Enjoy the rhyme and rhythm of this mandolin playing muse and his hilarious struggle with words as they threaten to twist and turn out of his grasp.


The bespectacled author of 13 books is widely known as one of the country’s most innovative comic artists and this children’s show will delight adults and young people alike with its chaotic comedy, bewitching poems, plus the extra bonus of a special guest musician.


Half Moon is delighted to present this new show created to celebrate the 35th birthday of Apples and Snakes, England’s leading organisation for performance poetry and spoken word.


After the show there will be a chance to meet John and purchase signed copies of his books.


For ages 7+


Running time: 60 minutes
