The 2nd IEG March event brings another fantastic line-up, with East vs South Yorkshire going toe to toe.
Straight outta East Yorkshire comes Jim Higo, host of Away with Words, the longest running poetry night in Hull and a brilliant, incendiary poetry performer.
From South Yorkshire, the knockout one-two of Del Scott Miller and Jeff Jethro Platts. Del was most recently seen getting commissioned to write the fantastic Little Blinder for the campaign for a statue of Billy Casper in Barnsley town centre in memory of Barry Hines. Hopefully, it will be on his imminent new lp, last year’s The Pen, The Sword and the Song was an absolute winner.
Jeff Jethro Platts stormed the Labour Club last year with a great poetry set and has been a leading voice in Barnsley’s newest poetry night Spoken Voices.
Refereeing on the night will be Chesterfield’s finest songsmith, the mighty Ichabod Wolf. Having come to terms with Radio 6 adulation in 2018, he is facing 2019 with his usual mixture of joie de vivre, love for all men and philanthropy. Or at least an Elvis-style curled lip and a witty disregard for his adoring audience.
Cracking line up, friendliest bar staff in town with the cheapest bar and only a fiver to get in.
