Hairdressers in Ventnor and Freshwater are among those across the country who have received mystery poems from writer, 'Mark Jones'. He's been dubbed the 'Banksy of Poetry' for randomly sharing his poetry with others.

Back in 2010 OnTheWight (then VentnorBlog) were fortunate enough to meet and spend time talking with the late great John Hurt. It was an incredibly special moment for us. Listen to the podcast to hear what John had to say, it was a fascinating conversation.
