Gentle Men – For No Glory
Thursday 27 November 7.30pm
St Giles-in-the-Fields • London WC2H 8LG

Performed by Robb Johnson, Jenny Carr and John Forrester
Introduced by A.L. Kennedy

Songwriter Robb Johnson performs his acclaimed song cycle Gentle Men, telling the stories of Robb’s grandfathers Ernest Johnson and Harry Jenner – who survived the First World War but were forever in its shadow.

Billy Bragg describes Gentle Men as ‘a wonderful mixture of the political and personal that stretches over their entire lives as young men, soldiers in the trenches, working in the 30s, eventually becoming fathers and grandfathers. It’s a really moving piece of work.’

Writer A.L. Kennedy will introduce this special performance, which Robb has dedicated as a fundraiser for the No Glory campaign. Robb will be joined by musicians Jenny Carr and John Forrester.

Ticket price £10/£8 includes a glass of wine in the interval, supported by Barefoot Wine.
