Next gig: Friday 31st Jan 2020, Raise the Bar at The Green Room, West Hampstead, London. 6pm kick-off.
More at home in a bar than a library, Mark Waddell takes his poems, often performed to backing music, to festivals, pubs and parties.
He has performed at events as diverse as Cerys Matthews’ The Good Life Experience festival through to In-Verse at his local Kentish Town pub The Lady Hamilton, supporting R.J. Ellory & The Whiskey Poets - not to mention waking folk up at The Hampstead Art Fair, strutting his stuff at the Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club and taking the stage at The Union Club in Soho alongside the inimitable Sonny Eriksson. He also appeared in Hull for City of Culture where he also erected street signs.
He is a long time supporter of Raise The Bar which started at the astonishing Torriano pub and now has found a new home at The Green Bar & Eatery in West Hampstead.
