Church Street,


‘The vehicle sat on the red bock driveway, squat and sullen. The ritual should have been simple... but there was so much he did not know, he had not observed it for so long, and now fear, coupled with a sense of obligation had led to an unexpected cry for help. After all you heard horror stories, heard of those moments when a vehicle died with no warning, at eighty mile an hour… out on the great tarmac. One moment hurtling forward, and then... nothing. Not a whisper, nor cough. Coasting mockingly to a halt, never to move again' From ‘The Driver’ by Gordon Lang 1945.

Tim Bromage presents a selection of readings from his recently completed poetry collection The Hunter and The Bleak. The performance is informed by a variety of disciplines including music, magic, and anecdote. Also drawing inspiration from folklore and local mythology the work explores truth, process, and FATE. It’s not all doom and gloom though, along the way there’s alternate realities, some rousing tunes, and the world famous bag and egg trick.
