Event details

Poet, movie star, rock star, TV and radio presenter, comedian and social and cultural commentator, John Cooper Clarke shot to prominence in the 1970s as the original ‘people’s poet’.

Since then his career has spanned cultures, audiences, art forms and continents.

Today, JCC is as relevant and vibrant as ever, and his influence just as visible on today’s pop culture. Aside from his trademark ‘look’ continuing to resonate with fashionistas young and old, and his poetry included on national curriculum syllabus, his effect on modern music is huge.

His influence can be heard within the keen social observations of the Arctic Monkeys and Plan B. These collaborations mean that John has been involved in two recent global No.1 albums - with the Arctic Monkeys putting one of John's best loved poems, 'I Wanna Be Yours', to music on their critically acclaimed 'A:M' album.

Following publication of his new poetry book 'The Luckiest Guy Alive', John comes to Bury Festival as part of his worldwide tour. With a mix of classic verse, extraordinary new material, hilarious ponderings on modern life, good honest gags, riffs and chat, this is a chance to witness a living legend at the top of this game.

Plus support.
