Sand in the Sandwiches description

Following a sell-out tour, Edward Fox returns to the stage with his acclaimed portrayal of John Betjeman, poet laureate and icon of British poetry.

Embracing his delight for nostalgia and delicious irreverence, Sand in the Sandwiches travels through Betjeman’s boyhood and adolescence, to life as Britain’s poet laureate, presenting a hugely entertaining insight into the world of this much-loved poet.
