Roger McGough: Alive and Gigging

Is poetry the new Rock’n’Roll?... It always was!

For sixty years, Roger McGough has thrilled and delighted generations of readers with his irreverent, intimate and ever-original poetry.

To celebrate the launch of his Collected Poems, Roger is touring his Alive and Gigging show, covering the Mersey soaked
sound of his quintessential Sixties start, through to tender meditations on fatherhood and family, and on to political sendups, pandemic playfulness and brilliant new writing. A performance poet like no other, he is bringing his best pieces to the stage for new and old audiences alike. Aged 87, he is a force of nature – and poetry!

“McGough has done for poetry what champagne does for weddings” – Time Out

This performance has been rescheduled from a previous date. The new confirmed date is Friday 5 July. All existing ticket holders have been contacted – if you have any questions, get in touch with us on [email protected]
