Martin Figura

Award-winning poet Martin Figura comes to The Mermaid Inn, Elsing

Poet Martin Figura’s show, ‘Boring the arse off young people’ comes to The Mermaid Inn, Elsing on Saturday 20th May at 8pm, with support from the arts and community development charity, Creative Arts East

Martin Figura has performed at Festivals all over the UK, as well as in the USA, Canada and India. Giving voice to all middle-aged people who refuse to grow old ‘gracefully’, the poet casts his sharp satirical eye on life’s trials and tribulations with warmth and humour. Based on his book of the same name, there is little he won’t talk about, and won’t let lack of knowledge get in the way of giving an opinion! With his wry wit and observations on the modern world, Martin hosts an evening to move, and have an audience laughing out loud in turns.

This event has been organised as part of the INN CROWD project by Creative Arts East and Writers Centre Norwich, with funding from Arts Council England.
