WIN! Tickets to see Mark Thomas in Scunthorpe

AWARD-WINNING comdian Mark Thomas is coming to Lincolnshire - and we have two pairs of tickets to be won.

After walking the wall in the West Bank, becoming Guinness World Record holder for political protests, and chasing arms dealers around the country, one of Britain’s most acclaimed comics and influential activists, Mark Thomas, turns his attention to matters closer to home with a show about his father.

First commissioned by London’s prestigious Royal Opera House, Bravo Figaro is the true tale of Mark’s father - a self-employed builder with a passion for opera, his degenerative illness, progressive supranuclear palsy, and Mark’s attempt to put an opera on in a bungalow. Mark’s career has seen six series on Channel 4, numerous awards, several television documentaries, three books, a Guinness World Record, sell-out tours, a published manifesto, a series on Radio 4, writing for various publications, producing charity benefits, a Medal of Honour, secretly filming torturers, stinging arms dealers, battling multinational corporations, exposing abuses of civil liberties and corporate skulduggery and much, much more.

Mark Thomas will be at Scunthorpe’s Plowright Theatre on Monday 19th November.
