Start Time 19:30
End Time 22:30

Luke Wright is about to embark on his most extensive UK tour to date which takes in the length and breadth of the country, from the Channel Islands to Scotland. It includes a date at Liverpool Philharmonic on 16 February.

Luke Wright enjoys an international reputation as one of the top performance poets around and has also had several books of his poetry published including 2021’s The Ballad Seller which featured  illustrations by brilliant political satirical cartoonist Martin Rowson of The Guardian.

For over 20 years Luke has toured the world to perform his flamboyant, political and riotously funny poetry but that all came to an abrupt halt in March 2020. Undeterred he launched an ambitious series of shows via Twitter, performing a daily show live online to audience figures of up to 10,000 for each. He continued this for a record breaking 100 days which led The Daily Telegraph to dub him ‘the bard of Lockdown’.

Now he is ready to go back on the road. Luke has won multiple awards (including a Scotsman Fringe First, a Stage Award for Acting Excellence and three Saboteur Awards including Best Performer in 2021).

Libertine Carl Barat (Luke often acts as MC for Libertines gigs) said ‘Luke is one of the greats. A poetic pugilist. Beguiling and hypnotic.’ No less a legend than Patti Smith has praised his ‘Cool poems’.
