Due to continuining Government restrictions, we have rescheduled this event. If you have already purchased a ticket, this will be automatically transferred to this new date. If you would prefer a refund, please contact your original point of sale. Thank you for your understanding.

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.

Suitable for ages 16+
