John Hegley and Friends
poetry + music
+ Luton Town Football Club
Sunday 1st July
Leconfield On Top
An evening with John Hegley, one of the nation’s best-loved poets;
Diego Brown and the Good Fairy;
Jamie and the Jets;
expertly compered by Geoff Allnutt.
John Hegley is a regular at the Edinburgh Festival: his show includes poetry, music (he plays the Mandolin), comedy and Luton Town Football Club. He also appreciates audience participation: prepare for a dog drawing competition during the interval.
JAMIE AND THE JETS
Jamie and the Jets are introspection delivered extrovertly.
DIEGO BROWN AND THE GOOD FAIRY
John Hegley is often to be found with Diego Brown and the Good Fairy, who describe themselves as ‘like the Carpenters on a lost weekend in Twin Peaks, someone once said we’re the most surreal musical experience since the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band. We think of performance as a two-way thing: we have high expectations of our audience. And they usually come up trumps.’
