We are thrilled to announce a very special performance by legendary Punk Poet Attila the Stockbroker, celebrating National Poetry Day on Thursday October 7th. Attila will perform pieces from ‘Heart on his Sleeve‘, his newly published anthology of writings from the last 40 years. If we are lucky, and in keeping with the ancient church venue, Attila may also whip out his crumhorn or pluck his mandocello, for a couple of numbers from his band Barnstormer 1649‘s 2018 album, ‘Restoration Tragedy‘ – where Early Music meets punk!
Attila will be ably supported by Steyning wordsmith Simon Zec.
Copies of ‘Heart on his Sleeve‘ as well as Attila’s albums and merchandise will be on sale and Attila will be happy to sign & dedicate the books.
Tasty local beers by RIVERSIDE BREWERY (& soft drinks) will be on sale, card or cash payments will be accepted.
