Harry Baker: Wonderful **SORRY, SOLD OUT**

After a sellout Edinburgh Fringe Run and subsequent 40-date UK Tour, World Poetry Slam Champion Harry Baker joins us in the wonderful setting of the Saloon with a brand new show celebrating the wonder that is being alive. **SOLD OUT**

  • Booking essential

Featuring brand new poems about death, postcodes and his favourite German wheat beer Schöfferhofer, the maths-loving, TED-talking, German-speaking, battle-rapping, happy-crying, self-bio-writing unashamed human brings his signature playfulness and poignancy that has made him a fan favourite and reached millions of people all over the world.

Harry Baker is a poet and maths graduate. He writes about important stuff like hope, dinosaurs and German falafel-spoons. His work has been shared on and viewed by millions online but is even better in person. He has performed all over the world and his latest collection ‘Wonderful’ is out in May 2024 alongside a UK tour of the same name.
