The event is the Coffee Shop’s first ticketed event of the same name.
The poet will be performing a carefully selected range of poems from his new collection ‘Undaunted’, dealing with our ever changing times, including topics about Brexit and Trump.
He will as perform extracts from his recent autobiography ‘Arguments Yard’, and there will be a few of his songs as well, accompanied by his trusty mandola, Nelson.
Taking place on Saturday 25 November, from 7.15pm, the event is a must see.
Attila the Stockbroker launched into public consciousness by legendary Radio One DJ John Peel in 1982.
Since then, he has toured the world performing his sharp-tongued, radical social surrealist poetry and songs for 36 years.
He has performed in over 3400 gigs in 24 countries, and released over 40 CDs, LPs and singles.
An impressive 8 books of poetry have been published by the performer, and he produced his autobiography ‘Arguments Yard’ just over a year ago.
Owner of Ham and Jam Coffee Shop, Richard Lowthian, said: “We are just marking our second birthday and wanted to celebrate by hosting Attilla the Stockbroker.
“We are delighted he is supporting small business like us.
“The support we have had from Preston communities and arts groups has been overwhelming and we can’t thank people enough.
“We feel this part of Preston is gaining a reputation for being the arts quarter and are keen to support that as well as continuing to serve great coffee of course!”
The event is a ticketed event priced at £8 per person, and you can purchase tickets online.
