Edward Fox stars in this brand new stage play, bringing Betjeman’s poetry and his vivacious personality to life.
Embracing his delight for nostalgia and delicious irreverance, 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 much-loved poet.
