Henry Normal - Raining Upwards

Henry Normal - Raining Upwards

‘Dovetails bittersweet poetry with a sublimely observant wit’ The Guardian 

Join Henry in the Theatre as he reads from his brand new collection, Raining Upwards at this very special launch event, Nottingham-born Henry Normal is a writer, poet and TV & Film producer, the founder of the Manchester Poetry Festival and co-founder of the Nottingham Poetry Festival; who was awarded a BAFTA for services to television in June 2017.

His poems have recently appeared in the Guardian, regularly on various BBC radio 4 shows and are promoted widely by the National Autistic Society and other charities for which he works. The show Raining Upwards is both funny and poignant, exploring everything from before the big bang, to life, the universe, infinity and beyond.
