Overcoming childhood poverty and illness, then working everyday jobs in the communities of his beloved home city of Manchester, he has risen in recent years to become one of the UK’s most widely recognised and most in-demand professional poets. A regular on tv and radio since 2011, Tony performs and teaches internationally and his work has been commissioned by a growing list of major institutions, attracting a legion of fans and celebrity admirers.
“Some poets can make you laugh, some poets can make you cry, but very few can do both. Tony Walsh is one such poet. Splitting your sides, breaking your heart and blowing your mind? Beware! This guy should come with a health warning!” Glastonbury Festival 2011
