The Manifesto : Mark Thomas
It can not have escaped your notice that we as a nation are currently drifting up a certain well known creek, economically, politically, socially... er ...totally. So where are the great ideas, theories and visions to help us in our hour of need?
Comedian activist, Mark Thomas is trying to create a People's Manifesto and wants your help. In this hit BBC Radio 4 show each audience gets to come up with their own policies, which Mark will include in the final manifesto.
Here is your chance to not only enjoy a magnificent evening of comedy, but also to propose your very own policy for our nation's betterment. All we want is ideas that you think will improve our lives, be they silly, serious, economic, plagiarised, original, bold, simple, complex, obvious or morbid.
As a condition of entry we will be contacting you before the recording asking for your suggestions, which Mark will then build the show around. Many will be considered on the night, some will be dismissed out of hand and some Mark will actually try to put into practice. PLease note that by applying for tickets, you are agreeing to you details being passed to production for this purpose.
