Manchester Literature Festival presents

An Evening with Tony Walsh

MLF are delighted to host a special evening with Tony Walsh, aka Longfella. A brilliant live performer, Tony will be performing a set of greatest hits from his first collection, Sex & Love & Rock & Roll, followed by a second set from his eagerly-awaited new collection, Work. Life. Balance. (Burning Eye Books), which switches between mature reflection, biting satire, gritty truths and epic rabble-rousing.

Tony's performance of his poem, This is the Place, at the Albert Square vigil to honour the victims of the Manchester Arena terrorist attack in 2017, struck a deep chord with millions of people across the globe, and earned him a special place in the hearts of many Mancunians.

Come and share some belly-laughs, tears and heart-swelling pride with one of the city's most inspiring wordsmiths.

Suitable for ages 16+
