'Wartime and Romance' (1) - From Boaters to Anti-Bac!

Event Description

War is a grim business, but romance doesn’t come to a grinding halt ... and neither does British humour. In both wartime and peace, love and laughter soldier on!

Andy Smith is a performance poet who shares real-life perspectives of two world wars gleaned from family and friends over several decades; he weaves romance and humour into an entertaining, yet poignant presentation that stimulates a response from audiences who inevitably have their own family stories to tell!

Meet the Host, Andy

Andy Smith is a performance poet, author and former business communicator who has two artificial limbs, three fine children, a whippet called Tamba and a tabby called Toby. (He also had two feisty chickens until ‘Basil Brush’ made their acquaintance). Andy engages live and digital audiences with his poetry, humour and a smattering of history ... and once a year, the bionic bard and his long-suffering wife make a trip to West Africa to support and encourage victims of trauma.

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
