Henry Normal: A Normal Family

Henry Normal: A Normal Family

31st March 2019

Based on Henry's bestselling book of the same name (out in paperback from March 2019) Henry discusses love, relationships and family drawing upon his own experience of bringing up his autistic and much acclaimed artistic son, Johnny (now 20).

Better known as co-writer of award-winning TV and film shows such as The Royle Family, The Mrs Merton Show, The Parole Officer, Coogan's Run, Paul Calf and producer of amongst many others Oscar nominated Philomena, Gavin and Stacey, Moone Boy, Uncle and Alan Partridge, Henry recently returned to his first love: poetry. He is quickly establishing himself once again as a headlining poet at Literature Festivals, theatres and other venues. His poems have recently appeared in the Guardian, regularly on his BBC Radio 4 shows and are promoted widely by the National Autistic Society and other charities for which he works.
