Sand in the Sandwiches celebrates a man famous not only for light verse and laughter, but for his passions, his sense of purpose and his unforgettable poetry.

Edward Fox stars in this joyous stage play bringing Betjeman’s poetry, sharp wit and vivacious personality to life.

Embracing his delight for nostalgia and delicious irreverence, Sand in the Sandwiches travels through Betjeman’s boyhood and adolescence, to life as Britain’s poet laureate, presenting a hugely entertaining insight into the world of this national treasure.

Double BAFTA award winner Edward Fox [OBE] is one of this country’s most eminent actors. His distinguished career counts iconic British films such as The Day of the Jackal, A Bridge Too Far, Oh! What a Lovely War, to name a few.
