Kenneth Williams

Kenneth Williams explores his roots in and around St Pancras where he grew up. (1983)

Kenneth Williams explores his roots in and around London's St Pancras, where he grew up.

Architecture, poetry, art and music were the formative influences on Kenneth Williams: the slum architecture of St Pancras where he grew up; the liquid poetry of his gran's fruity anecdotes; the art of the Marcel wave practised by his hairdresser father; and the musical knees-up of 'The Boot'. (1983)
