Ciaran Walsh reading ‘Red Dagger’

Ciaran Walsh, storyteller and radical historian, will perform a dramatic recitation of the poem The Red Dagger by Heathcote Williams. The poem tells the bloody story of the City of London’s symbolic coat of arms.


Housmans are proud to welcome storyteller and radical historian Ciaran Walsh who will be performing the poem The Red Dagger by and on behalf of the English poet and dramatist Heathcote Williams. The Red Dagger tells the story of the City of London’s symbolic coat of arms, an image of the blood red soaked dagger that killed Wat Tyler. Walter "Wat" Tyler was a leader of the 1381 Peasants' Revolt. The dagger survives and is on display at Fishmongers’ Hall.

Walsh’s is a rip-roaring rendition (not for the faint-hearted!)
