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.

If you are near Belper, Derbys pop into the Kunst Gallery and see Art By Johnny exhibition. The chap who runs it is very friendly. His name is Jonny as well. ... See MoreSee Less

Happy St George’s Day and happy birthday to Shakespeare. I’m very proud to say the flag of St George adorns the Council House in the centre of Nottingham between two Nottingham Poetry Festival banners!

The previous and earliest known name was Albion from the Syrian born Princess Albina. ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you everyone who came to the opening show of the Nottingham Poetry Festival at Antenna. This is Gail Webb. As a birthday surprise she was invited to read her poem ‘poets arise’. This is the first time ever she’s read in public and she was great. It’s memories like these that make live events special. Enjoy the rest of the festival- over seventy events. ... See MoreSee Less
