Mark Thomas: An Extra Plate

Information

Time: 3:00pm & 8:00pm

Tickets: Pay What You Can (suggested price £20)

Running Time: 75 mins

Age Guidance: 12+

This event takes place in person in our Members Bar.

Mark Thomas is just about the last person you’d associate with “ho ho ho let’s throw a log on the fire and gather round for Christmas” 

But… MARK LOVES CHRISTMAS! Christmas singles, films, carols, decorations, presents, food and, most of all, Christmas stories! 

From this most unChristmassy storyteller comes Christmas tales from his life, time and family. The one where his dad was Father Christmas for the school fete, the Christmas spent alone, the dead neighbours, the broken hearts and the unexpected guests. Mark loves it all, but most of all he loves the stories of giving and sharing, celebrating and finding hope in the darkest time of year. 

It’s time to tell of the ghost of radical Christmas past and present. It’s part comedy, part pathos and an all-out party with more cheer than a Laplander’s eggnog hot tub!
