A journey through Betjeman’s verse

By Surrey and Hants News in Arts

Fresh from a sellout 2016 UK tour, Edward Fox OBE takes the celebrated one-man play exploring the life and work of John Betjeman, Sand in the Sandwiches, to the New Victoria Theatre, Woking, on June 16th and 17th.

A journey through memory and verse, the play collates the work of one of the 20th century’s most treasured poets, written by Hugh Whitemore and directed by Gareth Armstrong.

Edward Fox says he is excited to be returning as the role of John Betjeman.

“All of us involved are working to magnify the voice of one of the greatest minds in England. Betjeman once said that ‘poetry is life’, and I agree. You can’t live without it,” he said.
