Comment on this story on the

He was a conservationist, television personality and best selling poet. 25 years after he passed away Betjeman remains a national treasure.

Through his poetry it is easy to see why: passionate about the countryside, the opposite sex, whimsical and nostalgic, hilariously funny, always self-deprecating and deeply honest.

Actor Lance Pierson tells the story of Betjeman’s life through his poems.

Through Betjeman’s heartbreaks and triumphs he paints a picture of a changing 20th century England.

The performance includes most popular and significant poems (including Slough, Joan Hunter Dunn, Diary of a Church Mouse, Christmas).
