What's on


MARK THOMAS – “Black & White” – Preview Show – Wednesday, 13th July


“Black & White” – Preview Show

PICTURED: Mark Thomas

Join Mark as he tries out material for his brand new show. Expect creative fun from one of our oldest surviving alternative comics. Taking down politicians. Mucking about. New ideas and finding HOPE. This award-winning comedian (is there any other type?) asks how did we get here? What are we going to do about it? Who’s up for a sing song? After lockdowns and isolation this show is about the simple act of being in a room together and toppling international capitalism.

Need we say more?

“You’ll leave recommitted to the fight against this appalling authoritarian government, to keep that tradition alive.” – THE GUARDIAN (2021)
