Welcome to the website of HENRY NORMAL

Hello, I’ve been posting information on Facebook for the last two years and have finally got round to organising a website. The site contains much of the same information and material as my Facebook site but I’m aware not everyone does Facebook and that the information there is often hard to access other than by labouriously scrolling down. The information here is far better organised and more extensive.

There’s a contact page if you’d like to email me. Do let me know your thoughts on the site and any suggestions.

CHECK OUT THE OTHER PHOTOS

I've had an interesting few days. Thursday I helped Nottingham Council celebrate 100 years of Council Houses at what is called the Council House in the centre of Nottingham (pictured behind me in the first photo). We were in the room that opens to the balcony where Brian Clough and the Forest team showed Nottingham the European Cup so a very special place for me.

Later I spoke with two dozen writers about comedy at City Arts (where I'm a patron). Nottingham is thriving with writers.

On Friday the 13th I did a gig at a church in Retford. At 5.50am that morning and again at 8.30am I threw up violently but luckily my head didn't revolve a full 360 degrees. I think I may have eaten the toilet bit of the house cake (pictured).

Saturday I read some poems at the Workhouse in Southwell. A huge building where families were once separated and worked in Victorian times. It's now got a cafe and gift shop so not as forbidding a workplace these days.

Sunday I was near Chester with Cerys Mathews, Liz Berry, Raymond Antrobus and Susanna Herbert at The Good Life Experience. A great place but I didn't see Margot ! I read poems in a tent on the site of an ancient and bloody Welsh battlefield now full of peaceful and friendly folk. Then I drove back to Brighton in time for a bit of mindless violence with Peaky Blinders.

If you were at any of these events I hope you enjoyed them. If you have any photos please do post them. I'm having a quiet day today, driving and talking as little as possible. Just me Angela, Johnny, a cup of tea and a bit of facebooking. I'm just praying I've not set off a pandemic.
