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.
