ATTILA the Stockbroker will stage a special performance at The Cellar, in Quay Street, Cardigan on Monday, July 10.

Launched into public consciousness by legendary Radio One DJ John Peel in 1982/83, Attila the Stockbroker has toured the world performing his sharp-tongued, radical social surrealist poetry and songs for 36 years, doing more than 3,400 gigs in 24 countries and releasing more than 40 CDs/LPs/singles, eight books of poetry and, just over a year ago, his autobiography ‘Arguments Yard’.

What with (in his words): "a lunatic misogynist billionaire in the White House having received about 3 million votes fewer than his opponent."

What with: "the UK hurtling towards Brexit after a virulently xenophobic right wing press campaign and a vote based on a bunch of ‘promises’ which were repudiated the day after the result." (Attila's not exactly a 'remainer' either - but that's another story).

Given all that and a hung Parliament, Attila thinks the world is going nuts and he is more fired up than he has ever been in 36 years as a performance poet.

Since he thinks he understands why all this is happening, you’ll hear his humourous and hard-hitting take on the momentous events of the last few months - and a whole lot more besides, for he has developed a deeply personal side to his work alongside the political satire for which he is best known, writing movingly about his family and his recent cancer diagnosis.

He will be performing poems from his new collection ‘Undaunted’ – the title says it all – as well as extracts from his recent autobiography ‘Arguments Yard’ (Cherry Red Books).

And there will be a few of his songs as well, accompanied by his trusty mandola, Nelson.

Laugh, cry and get very, very angry (in a reserved British kind way of course).

Tickets are £8/concessions £6/under 18s £5 and are available from the venue or via
