Grahame Lloyd “A Load of Old Balls”

July 9 @ 20:30 - 21:30

£5

As Euro 2020 reaches its climax, “A Load of Old Balls” brings to Frome an hour-long collection of songs and poems celebrating some of the most famous football personalities of the modern game.  A light-hearted look at the language of football (with a bit of cricket and politics thrown in for good measure).

Wayne Rooney, Arsène Wenger, Sir Alex Ferguson, Jose Mourinho, Sven-Göran Eriksson and Thierry Henry are all included in this mixed bag of quotation, poetry and song – including a special version of Who ate all the pies? featuring fat footballers.

Grahame Lloyd has been a freelance broadcaster and journalist for forty years. He has commentated and reported on football for BBC, ITV, Talksport, the Independent, the Guardian and The SkySports Football Yearbook.

A published poet, he has written eight football and cricket books and performed his one-man shows about football and cricket around the UK for fifteen years.

Bar open throughout.
