After 3 sell out tours, Duncan, Tim, the Hippo invite you to join them on this epic adventure - the largest ever Flanders and Swann tour since Flanders and Swann toured.
Lifelong fans and the uninitiated alike have delighted in seeing the boys breathe new life into Flanders and Swann’s wonderful songs including: The Hippopotamus Song, The Gas Man Cometh, The Gnu Song, Omnibus (or A Transport of Delights), A Song of Patriotic Prejudice and Madeira M'Dear. Flanders and Swann’s own brand of inoffensive, gentle but witty and often satirical humour has stood the test of time, remaining popular with all ages.
Tim FitzHigham is a Perrier nominated and award winning comedian who has performed on BBC Radio 1, 2, 4 and 5, toured lots and appeared in many films both in the UK and Europe. Duncan Walsh Atkins is a stalwart of BBC Radio 4, runs a busy London music studio, has released an album Taste the Rain and has also toured lots. They have toured the UK together before in Noel Coward's Words and Music - a gala evening of satire, song and stiff upper lips.
