Mark Thomas brings The Red Shed to Penrith

Mark Thomas
Mark Thomas

Having kept himself busy Trespassing all over in his last show, Mark has somehow found the time to travel back and forth to his university town of Wakefield and to the place where it all began; the Red Shed, a labour club there, home to Mark’s first public performances as well as the beginnings of his political awakening.

Following yet another sell-out, critically acclaimed run at this year’s Fringe, and winning himself a Stage Special Award and his third Fringe First award , Mark will bring his brand new show to Penrith’s Old Fire Station on Tuesday 22nd November.

Interviewing old friends and comrades, Mark pieces together the club’s history and works alongside it to campaign with some of the poorest workers in the country. It is the story of the battle for hope and the survival of a community. It is a tale of strikes, fights, dinner ladies, crap beer, good beer,  burger slingers, pickets, placards, commies, friendship, love, history, dreams and, above all, remembering.

Tues 22nd PENRITH, Old fire Station 01768 899444.
