Tony Walsh

A regular on TV and radio, Tony Walsh reached a truly global audience with his poem ‘This Is The Place’, performed in the aftermath of the Manchester Arena bombing in 2017. Tony’s poems have been enjoyed by millions of people online and have been commissioned by the Imperial War Museum, Lake District National Park, Glastonbury Festival and the BBC. Forget what you imagined a poetry reading could be and expect belly-laughs, tears and everything in between from this talented, big-hearted performer who often leaves audiences on their feet, dazzled and breathless.
