Matt Abbott the Bettakultcha Podcast

Matt Abbott podcastIn this podcast which was recorded last year (it’s a long story which I won’t go into now) Matt Abbott describes his meteoric rise to fame as Skint and Demoralised and his equally sudden descent into the streets of Ossett to be er, skint and demoralised…

Don’t worry though, everything turns out all right as Matt is now a leading light in A Firm of Poets which is a touring troupe of spoken word artistes.

He also runs a vintage shop in Wakefield so his empire is starting to grow and he’s still only twenty six years old! I had a great time chatting to this terrific bloke so enjoy the conversation

Bettakultcha – Is the North Going South?

On January 21st we return to The Brudenell Social Club in Leeds with a Bettakultcha we’ve entitled “Is the North going South?”. As well as returning to the Brudenell we’ve also pleased to welcome back Andrew Critchett’s Fish& who will be feeding you all in the car park. Old timers will remember him serving amazing food way back when we held Bettakultcha V at Left Bank.
