In aid of Ledbury Community Transport, Michael Lunts presents

Flanders and Swann revisited

through the eyes of John Betjeman

Laugh away those 21st Century blues in the company of Flanders and Swann, here perfectly complemented by the words and wit of Sir John Betjeman.  Featuring a cornucopia of songs, familiar and less familiar, from The Hippopotamus to A Transport of Delight, from The Gnu to Have Some Madeira, M’Dear, the songs of Flanders and Swann are, as pianist, actor and singer Michael Lunts shows, rooted in that vision of the recent past often called Betjeman’s Britain.  A world where Miss Joan Hunter Dunn brushes shoulders with the ill-fated lovers in The Honeysuckle and the Bindweed, where Betjeman shares his love of all forms of ’obsolete transport’ with Flanders and Swann’s evocation of pre-Beeching Britain in The Slow Train.

Wallow, (along with the Hippopotamus!) in a little nostalgia for a by-gone world and the more gentle humour exemplified by these arch-observers of our national character.
