The Heron Theatre, Stanley Street, Beetham, Milnthorpe, Cumbria LA7 7AS 
An evening of poetry, stories, satire and political review
Let the Bard of Windmill Hill turn the absurd, bewildering and frequently frustrating aspects of modern life into laughter fodder for you! Witty, ironic and waspish, this is social comment and cerebral stand-up at its best. He has been praised by the BBC's Dr Phil Hammond for the range and depth of his work. This could be just the prescription you need.
