The Genius of Jake Thackray
Tyneside Cinema
 

Jake Thackray was one of the UK's finest lyricists. Best known to television audiences in the late 60's and early 70's for his topical songs, Jake's witty, comic, tragic and distinctly Northern songwriting won many fans at the time and a whole new cult following since his death in 2002.

To celebrate what would have been his 75th birthday, The Polite Room is dedicating an entire evening to the genius of Jake with contributions from local songwriters including PETE SCOTTNEV CLAYBEN HOLLAND and RUDOLF ROCKER FEATURING BOB FISCHER.
