The Best of John Betjeman

He was a conservationist, television personality and best selling poet. 25 years after he passed away Betjeman remains a national treasure. Through his poetry it is easy to see why: passionate about the countryside, the opposite sex, whimsical and nostalgic, hilariously funny, always self-deprecating and deeply honest. Actor Lance Pierson tells the story of Betjeman’s life through his poems. Through Betjeman’s heartbreaks and triumphs he paints a picture of a changing 20th century England. The performance includes most popular and significant poems (including Slough, Joan Hunter Dunn, Diary of a Church Mouse, Christmas). “The very performance Lance produces adds to the resonance and beauty of the verse tenfold; performance poetry is an art in which he truly thrives. His vocal range is hypnotic and limitless.” Three Weeks magazine at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe
