Futures Forum: Climate Week in Sidmouth ... Matt Harvey and the Element in the Room ... Thursday 5th March at 7.30pm
He is very entertaining:
Writer, poet, enemy of all that's difficult and upsetting, Matt Harvey's way with words has taken him from Totnes to the Wimbledon Tennis Championships via Saturday Live, the Edinburgh Festival and the Work section of the Guardian. He is host of Wondermentalist -- Radio 4's comedy-infused, musically enhanced interactive poetry cabaret -- and author of The Hole in the Sum of my Parts (Poetry Trust) and Where Earwigs Dare (Green Books). He is married, with one wife. They have two sons.
"Very funny..." Independent "...not only funny but tender and true" Guardian "fabulously understated" Dorset Echo
