Arrest That Poet!

Sat 2nd – Wed 13th Aug 2014


“Arrested three times. Spied on by undercover cops. Interviewed by Richard and Judy.”





Danny Chivers


Have you ever climbed up a power station, D-locked yourself to a construction company’s staircase or been sued for £5 million? Until recently, slam poet Danny Chivers certainly hadn’t. So how did a bookish boy from Bristol end up dodging security guards, battling criminal charges and trying not to thump Richard Madeley, all in the name of a safer planet?

Storytelling meets stand-up poetry in this darkly funny true tale of rhyming and rebellion, featuring insider stories from anti-fracking protests, outrageous mass arrests and a close encounter with notorious police spy Mark Kennedy.
