Description

Meet John Challis, local poet and winner of A Northern Promise Award.

The Clack Cab is about work, class, history, London and England.

It draws connections between taxi driving, selling fruit and veg, working in advertising & writing poetry.

References are made to the infamous boatman Charon who ferried souls of the dead across the river Styx

to the underworld.

Explore ancestry and heritage and discover how the past haunts and informs the present.
