"We're delighted to welcome the legendary Attila the Stockbroker to The Third Stage, the Theatre Royal's more intimate space for music and spoken word.
Sharp-tongued, high energy, social surrealist rebel poet and songwriter, Attila's themes are topical, his words hard-hitting, his politics unashamedly radical, but he'll make you roar with laughter as well as seethe with anger.
Inspired by the great Sussex poet Hilaire Belloc and punk rock, especially The Clash, he did his first gig on 8 Sept 1980, shouting poems in between punk bands. He quickly got two John Peel sessions and was on the front cover of Melody Maker - and he hasn't looked back since....
He's done about 2,800 more in 24 countries - at venues ranging from the Glastonbury Festival (every year since 1983) and countless other music and literature festivals in the UK, Europe, America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand to freezing punk squats in Germany to the Law Society and the Oxford Union and a hotel basement in Stalinist Albania.
As you get older you mellow out, allegedly. Attila hasn't."

If you want to come, please book your own ticket from the Royal Centre box office or website. The show is in the foyer of the theatre, so seating is unallocated and we will be able to sit together. We will meet in the bar beforehand for a drink.
