Since the Government updated it’s guidance on outdoor performances we have seen a trickle of LIVE events announced. We would remind you that these events will have limited capacity, most will require pre-booking, and all will be enforcing social distancing. We are listing these live events but there are also a whole host of virtual gigs taking place too.
September 8 @ 7:30 am£17.50
In his new show 50 Things About Us, Mark Thomas combines his trademark mix of storytelling, standup, mischief and really, really well researched material to examine how we have come to inhabit this divided wasteland that some of us call the United Kingdom.
Mark picks through the myths, facts and figures of our national identities to ask who do we think we are?
It is a show about money, history, songs, gongs, wigs, unicorns, guns, bungs, sods of soil and rich f*ckers.
And how we have so much feeling for such a hollow land.
The show is in the vein of The Manifesto [Mark’s book] meets a sweary History channel!
50 Things About Us will also be a podcast, and a book published by September Publishing in February 2020. It will also be an art exhibition… in Liverpool January 2020.
