The Elixir of Dreckly with Bert Biscoe and Pol Hodge (at ST JOHNS HALL)

Wednesday 5th July 2023
1:00 pm - 2:30 pm


Event Description

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.
