Edward Fox plays John Betjeman as Sand in the Sandwiches comes to Malvern

Craig Gibbons 12th Jun, 2017 Updated: 12th Jun, 2017

FRESH from a sell-out tour, Edward Fox comes to Malvern with his acclaimed portrayal of John Betjeman, one of the best-loved poets of the 20th century.

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.

Embracing his delight for nostalgia and delicious irreverence, Sand in the Sandwiches travels through Betjeman’s boyhood, his 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 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’ and ‘Oh! What a Lovely War’.

Sand in the Sandwiches got under way at Malvern Theatres last night with the final performances taking place tonight and tomorrow.
