Comedian and activist Mark Thomas to do benefit gig for Housing Justice
A Christian charity working with homeless and badly housed people is to benefit from a gig by comedian and activist Mark Thomas ...
Mark Thomas will be performing at an exclusive gig for the benefit of Housing Justice, a Christian charity that supports churches in delivering service to homeless and badly housed people.
The organisation is also known for its vigorous campaigning, notably for homeless people’s human rights, a work that was recently rewarded by the organisation being shortlisted by Liberty, the human rights organisation, for one of their awards.
Mark Thomas will give an exclusive preview of his new show, 100 Acts of Minor Dissent, to be performed at the Edinburgh Fringe.
The show will also feature Bob Boyton, a writer, who will read passages from his novel, Bomber Jackson Does Some, a novel about his personal experience of homelessness.
Alison Gelder, Housing Justice CEO said: “We are absolutely thrilled that Mark should have chosen us, and to preview his new show, to boot! Housing Justice has been intensifying its human rights focus in the campaigning area over the last two years, and Mark choosing us to give an exclusive preview of his new show is a vindication of our hard work.”
Both Mark and Bob will meet the audience and merchandise will be available. All profits will go to Housing Justice.
Date: 21 July 7.30-10:30pm
Venue: St Luke’s Church, Hillmarton Road, London N7 9RE
