Friday 7th May, 9.15pm on The Verb

Following his performance of the Chip Shop Poem, a poem composed of the words generated by the Chip Shop at the London Word Festival 2010, Ian McMillan enjoyed the Chip Shop so much he asked us to come on his BBC Radio 3 ‘caberet of the word’ show, THE VERB. Chip Shop will be featuring in a special live edition of Radio 3 show. Beaming out from the Radio Theatre in Broadcasting House, you’ll be able to hear the Henningham Family Press printing and selling chips to fellow guests; Simon Armitage and Richard Hawley, the 300 live studio audience, and of course, poet, raconteur and national treasure, Ian McMillan. Unfortunately there are no more tickets left for this event, but hopefully you’ll still join us, live on air! 91.3 FM, for those of you whom, like us, are still on the old-fashioned twiddly wireless. And there is one other way you can take part in the show… Suggest a word for our catch of the day! More details to follow.

Chip Shop’s appearance at Toynbee Studio Arts & CafĂ© Bar, our 1st official outing was a roaring success – from the minute we opened to the moment we ran out of chips to sell (by popular demand, closing time was delayed by half an hour) we were rushed off our feet!

Here’s some photos from our point of view:

And for some photos from the other side of the Chip Shop counter, see here.

If you missed it, or just want to come see it happen again, we’ll be at the Red Art Cafe (113 Kingsland Road, Dalston) this Sunday 14th March, 12-5pm. It’s also the last chance to submit words for the London Word Festival 2010 Official Festival Poem to be written by Ian McMillan.
