Up Close and Personal with Murray Lachlan Young

7pm, Friday 8 September

The Union club presents… Up close and personal with Murray Lachlan Young.

After three sell-out shows, don’t miss your last opportunity of the year to spend an intimate, mirth filled evening with Union poet-in-residence MLY.

And this one is a very special show, as the Club celebrates 30 years, Murray will debut a Union anniversary poem for the occasion. He would know – he’s been here since the beginning!

Tickets £25 per person – to book please transfer £25 (x # tickets needed) to Murray via Paypal at BOOK NOW link above!

Deeply humorous  satirical verse, stories and songs  with a surreal, sometimes abstract take on the follies, foibles that shape the modern, Western, media-driven, human experience.

Influenced by rock-n-roll lyrics at one end, moving through Noel Coward, Gilbert and Sullivan into Richard Bach at the far end – delivered, with great warmth in brilliant and dynamic form.

This performance will include: an abridged version Murray’s acclaimed BBC, virus diaries collection, semi-erotic shanty singing, a few old favourites for those that know.

MLY has worked as resident poet, BBC Radio4 Saturday live, BBCR2 Culture show, BBC6 Music, CERN, Shakespeare’s Globe – to name but a few.

Come along and be moved, tickled and taken on a surreal journey into the known and the unknown.
