Dan Webber – Genre Fluid Poetry Show

23/10/2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


There are just a handful of tickets left for this! Book now to avoid disappointment by calling us on 01629 823272.


The stand-up poet, reluctant bear and attempted vegan strips… away labels of life, love, the arts and the LGBTQ+ community in this fast-paced, honest and hilarious debut. Under constant pressure from marketing people to decide whether he is a comic or poet, Dan navigates through the confusing world of definitions.

Being constantly told you’re a comic at poetry nights and a poet at comedy nights can be very confusing, as is the constant pressure to define yourself and your work.

Genre Fluid is a study into labels in everyday life, in the arts and the LGBTQ+ community, written by Dan Webber (reluctant bear, attempted vegan).


The show lasts just over an hour. Please arrive early for a 7pm start. We will have an interval for refreshments and a Q+A, where you will also be able to purchase Dan’s book Genre Fluid. Tickets are £8.00 inc. a drink. To book your place, please contact Scarthin Books on 01629 823272.
