Admired by Neil Gaiman, Jarvis Cocker, Cerys Matthews, Thea Gilmore, and Alex Turner of Arctic Monkeys, among others, Jake Thackray is increasingly recognised as one of the most original songwriters of the twentieth century; whose songs are full of wit, poetry, irreverence and humanity.  This piece about him, published in The Guardian in August, explores this with the help of Neil Gaiman, Mike Harding, Ralph McTell, and Paul Thompson.

Paul Thompson will mix discussion of Jake’s remarkable life with performance of his songs, some famous, some rediscovered during research for the book. It is a winning combination.

Tickets: £6.00, including refreshments
