The Elixir of Dreckly with Bert Biscoe and Pol Hodge (at ST JOHNS HALL)
Wednesday 5th July 2023
1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
How does it feel for sons and daughters, cleaners and waiters, evangelists of diﬀerence and custodians of culture to lean over the gate and observe the agitations of arrival – grating locks, misplaced emphases in tannoy announcements, the romanticising of lore, the dilution of custom? How do they arrive at a mindset that smiles a gentle welcome? Bert Biscoe and Pol Hodge – Dew Vardh – are poets of the leaning gate, with songs, poems, anecdotes, social realism and surrealism, wit, pathos and a goodly dose of the Elixir of Dreckly.
