Never miss another 'Howard Marks' show
Scholar, Smuggler, Prisoner, Scribe: Howard Marks
Intrepid bon viveur Howard Marks will debut his brand new spoken word show; Scholar, Smuggler, Prisoner, Scribe. With trademark honesty and penetrating humour, Howard will look back at four extraordinary and action packed phases of his life.
Covering his time as an academic and his nascent interest in marijuana, through his infamous years as the world’s most notorious drugs trafficker and his incarceration in Terre Haute, one of the United States' toughest penitentiaries, Howard brings the story up to date with his current career as a bestselling author and international pleasure.
Enthralling and hilarious in equal measure, you may think you know the Howard Marks story but there are many tales still left to tell.
Howard will give a talk plus DJ set.
This show was rescheduled from 20th October.
Howard Marks was a raconteur and ex-international drug smuggler. Notorious for his audacious exploits in the '70s and '80s, Howard avoided the grasp of international law enforcement for two decades, while building one of the biggest smuggling rings in history. The law finally caught up with Howard in 1988, whereby he served out 7 years of a 25 year sentence, before being released in 1995.
He died in April 2016.
