Comedy fans have the chance to catch award-winning writer, comedian, activist and all-round mischief-maker Mark Thomas in his latest multi-award winning show The Red Shed at Oxford’s North Wall on Thursday February 16.

Offering the chance to experience a night of theatre, comedy, and storytelling, The Oxford Mail has three pairs of tickets to give away for this third instalment of the multi award-winning trilogy.

The Shed, home to Mark’s first public performances, is also a home to dissent, to organising and to progressive politics, and so it was here that Mark’s true political prowess began. An iconic and vital place for its patrons, this is where the true meaning of solidarity is found and where you can be part of history and part of the struggle. A south London lad, born to a Thatcherite world of self-employed builders, labourers and tradesman like his father where the individual is key, Wakefield’s alien traditional labour community awoke a new determination in Mark and changed his life forever.

To take part in the competition, answer this simple question:

In which UK city is the Red Shed found?


A: Oxford.

B: Wakefield

C: Birmingham
