John HegleyHegley is also an occasional DJ, dancer and workshop leader, using drawing, poetry and gesture. That makes him the perfect person to lead an offbeat Family Workshop on Saturday 23 June in Hebden Bridge Town Hall from 3pm. It's an opportunity for anyone who has ever been 7 years old to draw some ship shapes and the crew and passengers there upon.

You can also expect songs about sea birds and poems about sea creatures. In the evening Hegley is back in the Town Hall from 7.30pm for New and Selected Potatoes reading new work and at least a dozen classics from his Genius Collections 1984-2013.

There will be songs, poems, drawings and joining ins devised with adults in mind but acceptable to many nine year olds wearing spectacles. Tickets from Hebden Bridge Town Hall or on the Festival website
