Sand in the Sandwiches

  • Show Information

John Betjeman was the nation’s favourite poet.

Sand in the Sandwiches celebrates a man famous not only for light verse and laughter, but for his passions, his sense of purpose and his unforgettable poetry.

Edward Fox stars in this brand new stage play, bringing Betjeman’s poetry and his vivacious personality to life.

Embracing his delight for nostalgia and delicious irreverance, Sand in the Sandwiches travels through Betjeman’s boyhood, his adolescence, to life as Britain’s Poet Laureate, presenting a hugely entertaining insight into the world of this much-loved poet.

Double BAFTA winner Edward Fox (OBE) is one of this country’s most eminent actors. His distinguished career counts iconic British films such as The Day of the Jackal, A Bridge Too Far, Oh! What a Lovely War, to name a few.

Emmy Award winning writer Hugh Whitemore’s celebrated works for the stage and screen include Stevie, Pack of Lies and Breaking the Code.
