The narrative poem behind Rory Aaron’s debut show, This Town.

Cobbled Streets, is a modern-day epic, long narrative poem, by Rory Aaron (BBC New Creatives and Southbank Poetry Collective). The autobiographical work is based on Rory’s own life- growing up in a working class, post-industrialised small town in Derby, and it looks at his own experience with loss, opportunities and friendship. The work also specifically zones-in on issues around class; the ethics of army recruitment and support available after combat; the cost-of-living crisis; and mental health.


Rory Aaron is a poet, writer and performer from Derby currently based in Manchester. He was part of the BBC New Creatives 2020 Cohort, where he produced his first short film called Doglike which can be seen on BBC I Player. Rory is currently part of the Southbank Centres New Poetry Collective for 2022, and is working on the two person show, This Town, with Contact and Derby Theatre.
