Chris Difford is a Grammy nominated and double Ivor Novello Award winning lyricist who has brought us characters and sketches from everyday life, and has successfully turned the mundane into the beautiful, the urbane into the exquisite, for over 40 years.
With his collaborator, Squeeze co-founder Glenn Tilbrook, Chris has written some of the most enduring and best-loved songs of our time such as 'Up The Junction', 'Cool For Cats' and 'Labelled With Love', 'Tempted' and many others. Squeeze returned with new album 'The Knowledge' in October 2017, followed by extensive world-wide touring into 2018.
Chris hosts song-writing retreats and has done so for over 25 years, some in Prisons, some in Rehabs, but mostly in Somerset with the Buddy Holly Foundation. He is one of the country's most respected songwriters and has co-written with a host of musicians and performers that reads like a veritable who's who of the industry.
In 2019 Chris will be on tour around the UK with his stand up sit down book & music tour.
Tickets are £14 (£16 on the door) and are available direct from OFS, The Old Town Hall and Online.
