Podcast recording 11th March

Award winning writer, performer and provocateur Mark Thomas records the first in his new podcast series, “Brit-ish” Monday 11th March at 19:00

Lush Studio Soho
67-71 Beak Street

Join Mark Thomas, Jonny and the Baptists AND the Commoners Choir (all 50 of them) for a once only show to create a new national anthem! Now more than ever we need a song that defines us, that celebrates us and one we can sing as if we are enjoying it rather than look like we are burying a local civic dignitary we hardly knew. Face it, the old anthem is so dull even the Queen doesn’t sing it and it’s about her!

Join Mark and the gang as they delve into the murky world of anthems and help compose new lyrics for our song of the future. No longer will we celebrate the Queen or bashing the Sots. Ours will be an anthem for hope and joy and a winning tune…
Imagine the Eurovision song competition meets Ian Dury, Mary Beard and a military band.

We have one night only to overturn centuries of tradition and establish ourselves as the voice of a modern Britain so join us in celebrating all that is great about being Brit-ish.

Sunday, 17th March, 7.00pm to 7.30pm at The Museum Of Comedy, The Undercroft, St George Church, Bloomsbury Way. WC1A 2SR

Join Mark for one night only in the Museum of Stolen Things, the first ever pop museum of the nicked. The price is a fiver BUT you have to bring along something stolen to show us to get in. So with your help we will collectively create our museum, in a kind of anarchist version of the Antiques Roadshow.

You bring anything from a bookies pen to The Scream by Edvard Munch, be as creative or as pedestrian as you like.

We will be running a drop in evaluation service from 3pm at the Museum for anyone who wants to have their stolen items appraised but can’t make the show.

The show is a recording of Mark’s new podcast “Brit-ish” in which he explores our institutions, culture and history in a valiant and possibly vain attempt to find out how the bloody hell we got to this state.

Mark Thomas has been going a long time, won lots of awards and will be filching Mark Steel’s identity for the night.
Terms and Conditions.

*Anyone who does not bring along a stolen item will not be admitted and we will keep your fiver.
**All items will be returned at the end of the show unless we like them.
***The Museum of Stolen Things is only 3 minutes walk away from the British Museum.
