|The Best of John Betjeman|
Actor Lance Pierson tells his life story through his poems
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).
