Love in a supermarket

POET and BBC Radio 4 regular John Osborne heads to the The Royal Oak in Drimpton at 6.30pm on Sunday 7th August to perform his new poetry collection about supermarkets and the people who use them.

A Supermarket Love Story comes to Dorset through Artsreach, as part of The Inn Crowd, a national project that supports some of the UK’s top performing poets to craft new shows especially for rural pubs.

The aim is to help landlords attract new customers, widen the experience for regulars, and help reinforce the pub as a central, vibrant part of community life.

John Osborne is a Radio 4 regular and creator of the cult show, John Peel’s Shed. Through his latest collection of poems, A Supermarket Love Story, love will bloom, lives will continue as they always have. As staff untuck their shirts and sit on kick stools stacking shelves, we join them all for a storytelling feast and find that every aisle really does tell a different story.

Weaving words to create wonderful worlds out of the most ordinary of situations, join John in two Dorset pubs this summer for a night of poignant, enchanting and heart-warming poetic tales.
