Love him or hate him, Dennis Skinner, ex-miner and fifty years a Socialist M.P. is not a man to be ignored.
His infamous belligerence and acerbic wit in the House of Commons, earned him recognition as “The Beast of Bolsover”. But beneath the hard-line political image, is a man with a passion for Nature and a soul who loves to sing.
In the music-hall tradition of working men’s clubs, Dennis describes the Houses of Parliament as “The Palace of Varieties”.
The show is driven by politics and a-cappella, in a fast-moving, entertaining night out down the miners’ welfare.
