Greetings from Eddie Lawler, aka  "Bard of Saltaire" (find the missing syllable, bollard?) now living in Scarborough. I write songs, musicals, poems and plays. (see News page) My work mixes fun with ‘serious’ social comment, offering thought-provoking entertainment.


"Tracking The Brontës" has arrived on the coast after lots of West Yorkshire performances.  It's been well received in Scarborough at Woodend, and at Whitby U3A. See Reviews page. It goes to Hull U3A and Whitby Fine Arts Society in 2019, details will follow.
