Prolific writer and broadcaster heading for Tewkesbury

Where: Roses Theatre, Tewkesbury

When: Thursday, May 21, 8pm

The irrepressible Mark Steel is on tour again in 2020, and heading to the Roses Theatre, Tewkesbury on Thursday, May 21.

Not long ago, it seemed highly unlikely the UK would vote to leave the EU. We had a reasonable opposition to the Tory Government, Donald Trump was a buffoon who surely wasn't going to beat Hilary Clinton, and Mark was living the married suburban ideal. Since then, it's all gone pear-shaped!

But don't worry, as Mark thinks Every Little Thing's Gonna Be Alright.

Mark's sell-out show Who Do I Think I Am revealed that his natural father was a world backgammon champion. Now the star of Radio 4's Mark Steel's in Town, and newspaper columnist of the year, Mark is back on the road with a new show that is guaranteed to make the world seem even more mental than it really is.

Mark has written and presented many series of Mark Steel's In Town and toured it live around the UK. He has presented the BAFTA-nominated Mark Steel Lectures for BBC2, and is a regular on BBC One's Have I Got News For You and Radio 4's The News Quiz.

Mark has also appeared on BBC2's QI and Room 101. He has written several acclaimed books, including Reasons To Be Cheerful and What's Going On, and writes a weekly column for The Independent - for which he won Columnist of the Year at the Press Awards in 2015.
