Kate Fox is a writer, performer and broadcaster who sometimes describes herself as a stand-up poet. She has been a Poet in Residence on Radio 4’s Saturday Live, Glastonbury Festival and the Great North Run. She is a regular contributor to Radio 3’s The Verb and presenter of Radio 4’s “Pick of the Week”. Radio 4 broadcast her two half hour comedy shows “The Price of Happiness” in 2015, and a second series in 2017. Her stand up spoken word show celebrating Northern women; “Where There’s Muck There’s Bras” sold out several theatres in the North of England when it toured after being commissioned by the Great Exhibition of the North in 2018.
We’re delighted to welcome Kate bringing her signature blend of humour, chat and thought provoking poetry and spoken word to a special live show featuring material from her new book The Oscillations, her sell out show about Northern Women “Where There’s Muck There’s Bras” and her Radio 4 comedy series The Price of Happiness. Expect to be warmed, uplifted and made to think, laugh and possibly even cry. As Ian McMillan said “It’s both comforting and challenging to have Kate Fox as our guide through these turbulent and fractured times; comforting because Kate’s language is always inclusive and accessible and challenging because the ideas her superb poems brim with ask us to look deeply inside ourselves.” and as Three Weeks and the Sunday Telegraph have said- she’s “hilarious, witty and warm“.
This is going to be a fantastic evening – don’t miss out!
