Details

Richard Dawson's songs are portraits of human beings struggling with recognisable (and dare we say it, relatable) concerns, conflicts and desires, each reminding us that tragedy and gallows humour are not mutually exclusive, and that the magical can sit next to the mundane. Lyrically it is by far Dawson’s hardest-hitting and unflinchingly honest album to date. It is his poetic masterwork.

Within, we find disgruntled civil servants dreaming of better days, anxiety-addled joggers listlessly searching Zoopla for houses they cannot afford in their spare time, amateur footballers who think they’re Lionel Messi and beleaguered pub landlords battling rising floodwaters.

Here is life, in all its strange and wonderful ways.

By Road:
From London, approach Norwich on the A11. Keep going along this road until you reach the inner ring road (there will be shops straight ahead on St. Stephens Street). Turn left at the roundabout on to Chapelfield Road, then keep going (past the Chapelfield shopping mall), until you reach the next roundabout. At this point the Roman Catholic Cathedral will be on your left. Go straight over this roundabout, underneath a pedestrian bridge and take the right hand lane for the traffic lights. Turn right onto St. Benedicts Street. This part of St. Benedicts is one-way, and you will fork left on to St. Swithins Road. From here, there are various car parks nearby or on-street parking (metered) on St. Benedicts Street (15p for 15mins, or free after 6pm) - please note there are limited places and some parts of St. Benedicts are permit parking only.

By Public Transport:
Norwich Train Station is 1.1 miles away from Norwich Arts Centre, and is approximately 15 mins walk or 7 mins by taxi. The station has direct mainline links to London, as well as links to Peterborough (for mainline services to the north of the country) and local services for the county and East Anglia.
