PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PERFORMANCE HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED FROM THE ORIGINAL DATE OF 22 MAY 2020

With the recent government advice, we wanted to do our utmost to ensure the health and safety of our audiences, staff, performers and wider community. To that end, unfortunately, we have closed the building in the short term and cancelled/ postponed all our events from 18 March to 30 June 2020. To this end we are also unable to respond to telephone queries at present. If you have something you wish to discuss with us then please email us at bmi@caerphilly.gov.uk.

We’re working through our shows sequentially, contacting ticket holders for all original performances to offer an exchange of dates (where rescheduling has been possible) or other alternatives. Ticket holders for the original performance should look out for an *email which outlines your options and next steps. We kindly ask that you bear with us as we work through the process.

*Please note that this only applies to customers that have disclosed their email address to us at the point of booking. If you have not, or are unsure as to whether you have disclosed an email address, please email blackwoodminersinstitute@caerphilly.gov.uk so that we can amend your record and update you accordingly.

Tickets for this performance will go on general sale at the end of April and we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Thank you for your patience at this difficult time.

A few years ago, it seemed unlikely that 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 Hillary Clinton and Mark was living the married suburban ideal, since then it’s all gone to absolute shit! 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 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 is touring a show which is guaranteed to make the world seem even more mental than it is.
Mark has written and presented many series of Mark Steel’s In Town on BBC Radio 4 (new series out soon) and toured it live around the UK.

Mark has presented the BAFTA nominated Mark Steel Lectures for BBC2, is a regular on BBC One’s Have I Got News For You and Radio 4’s The News Quiz.  He’s also appeared on BBC2’s QI and Room 101. Mark has written several acclaimed books, including: Reasons To Be Cheerful and What’s Going On and he writes a weekly column for The Independent for which he won Columnist of the Year at the Press Awards in 2015.
