Britain’s Favourite Funeral Songs
Wednesday 2 November & Wednesday 9 November at Spanners Club
Picking music for a funeral is no easy task. In a grief-stricken state we are liable to make the maddest playlists. But what do these songs say, if anything, about a country and its people? Through music and storytelling, Paul Haworth explores two biggies – death and Britain – in his new show.
Paul Haworth is a writer and performer. He is the author of the ‘Silk Handkerchiefs’ trilogy and ‘Letter to Robin Kinross’ (co-written with Sam de Groot), both published by TRUE TRUE TRUE. His play ‘Guide Me O Thou Great Redeemer’ premiered at Camden People’s Theatre in 2017. In 2018 he organised ‘The I Don’t Need To See That Fair’ at Grow Tottenham. His previous solo show was ‘You Can Always Sell Any Dream To Me’ in 2019, which was performed at Clout! Festival, Barking, and Hordaland Kunstsenter, Bergen.
