Event details

Nottingham Poetry Festival co-founder and critically-acclaimed TV and film, BAFTA-award-winning writer and producer Henry Normal has returned to his first love of poetry with a new live tour, poetry book and Radio 4 show.

Henry’s poetry renaissance is inspired by his experiences bringing up his autistic son Johnny. The result is a funny and moving collection of work, both on the page and the stage, about life and family.

His brand new live show “The Escape Plan” is touring in theatres around the country, and draws on over 40 years of work, featuring stories, jokes and poems from his successful BBC Radio 4 series and his seven poetry collections. His latest poetry book of the same name is his eighth published collection and is released on 16th March. A selective works in hardback, this latest volume features over 250 of his favourite and most popular poems.


This event will take place via live stream and is free of charge. Register for your free ticket on the Nottingham Poetry Festival website.
