Iconic performance poet, Tony Walsh announces UK tour dates  

Following the now legendary performance of his poem This is the Place in Manchester in May 2017, international audiences are now discovering what has been an open secret for well over a decade.  

An evening with Tony Walsh is a rip-roaring rock and roller-coaster ride from a profoundly inspiring artist at the very top of his game. 

Forget what you imagined a poetry night could be and expect belly-laughs, tears and everything in between from this big-hearted performer who often leaves audiences on their feet, dazzled and breathless.  

“I can’t wait to take my poems, old and new, around the UK. Performing live is what I’m all about. There’s something timeless and magical about being in a room full of friends and strangers, laughing together, cheering and crying; sharing a thought or memory, uniting in those special moments. I try to send people away inspired and uplifted, having had a really great night out. Newcomers to poetry would be especially welcome, alongside poetry lovers of all kinds.” Tony Walsh
