[R]enowned poet, storyteller and entertainer the Bard of Windmill Hill will be performing at Portinscale Village Hall on Monday the 4th September at 8pm. The Bard (Trevor Carter), who has rarely made an appearance up north, has received fantastic reviews from the many festivals and shows he has been involved in:
“Brilliant, captivating, cheering” Chippenham Folk Festival
“He gets better every time I see him” Anna Saunders, Director, Cheltenham Poetry Festival
“Pure magic” Chagstock
His work has been described as “Titillating but not trivial, scintillating satire and amazing stories”. Trevor,the only poet ever to win Bristol’s prestigious Storyteller of the Year Award, has published several books details of which are on his website.
The Bard of Windmill Hill turns the absurd, bewildering and frequently frustrating aspects of modern life into laughter fodder for you. Witty, ironic and waspish, this is social comment and cerebral stand-up at its best. He has been praised by the BBC’s Dr Phil Hammond for the range and depth of his work.
The event is organised by Julie Carter, sister of the Bard and Portinscale resident. Tickets are £7. Come along or book ahead by contacting Julie (017687 80467. [email protected]) The Bard will perform two halves with an interval and you are invited to bring your own refreshments.
