How I Came To Be Where I Never Was

Jonny FluffypunkThis event has now finished

Artsreach is delighted to be part of The Inn Crowd, a unique arts project, with the goal of supporting rural pubs to host spoken word-inspired live performances

How do you find yourself when you find yourself where you don’t belong?

Jonny Fluffypunk grew up in the far-flung, forgotten reaches of outer suburbia. In 1984, he was fifteen. This is a story about being the first punk in the village and the only trainspotter in eyeliner; about unrequited love and youth club and John Peel and the forgotten gods of small record shops; about making your own myth and letting go and a million everyday life-changing moments in the back end of nowhere. This is a lo-fi stand-up spoken word performances for anyone who has listened to late-night radio under the bedcovers, or fallen in love, or just been alive.

This energetic and engaging piece fuses elements of theatre, storytelling, comedy, stand-up poetry (think John Cooper-Clarke not John Keats) and even a bit of ukulele! Recommended 12+

Free performances, donations welcomed. Contact each pub directly if you'd like to book food ahead of the event.

"Acute social observation, intricate humour, surreal fantasy, sharp irony and wit… and England’s most pretentious moustache"
