Award-winning spoken word artist Antosh Wojcik brings his moving and deeply personal show How To Keep Time: A Drum Solo For Dementia to Clevedon’s Theatre Shop next month, and Times readers could win tickets to see the show.

Using just his voice and an electronic drum kit, Wojcik explores the effects of dementia on speech, memory and family.

His debut stage production, How to Keep Time: A Drum Solo for Dementia, tells the moving tale of Wojck's Polish grandfather's struggle against vascular dementia.

In a 60-minute mesmeric display of drumming and spoken word in which he asks: "What happens when memories disappear? Where do they go and can we get them back? Can I use my drums to communicate with my grandfather?"

Wojcik was born in Reading, and the 26-year-old is a resident artist at the Roundhouse and a member of poetry collectives Kid Glove and Burn After Reading.

He has performed at festivals including Glastonbury, Latitude and Bestival.

How to Keep Time: A Drum Solo For Dementia is produced by award-winning live literature company Penned In The Margins.

Maria Parsons of the Creative Dementia Arts Network praised Antosh's 'terrific use of drumming as a bridge for language in dementia'.

How to Keep Time: A Drum Solo for Dementia will be performed at The Theatre Shop, in Queens Square, on October 18 at 7.30pm.

Tickets, priced £12, are available at or 03336 663366.
