SHORT STORY FOR THE WEEKEND: The Intruder by Mike Gaines

Have your say

After a critically acclaimed sold-out Wedgewood Rooms show on Monday, comedian/activist Mark Thomas returns to the area for a show in Fareham tomorrow.

He’s bringing his Extreme Rambling (Walking The Wall) tour to the Ashcroft Arts Centre from 7.30pm, in a gig rescheduled from a planned preview show on December 15.

The show is based around Mark’s recent trip to the Middle East, in which he walked the entire 423 miles of the Israeli Separation Barrier around and in the West Bank.

The night will feature numerous anecdotes, comic observations and a fascinating insight into an ancient and still very current conflict.

Seating is unreserved. Tickets remain valid from December or can be bought for £12.50 from 01329 223100 or 3.hants.gov.uk/ashcroft.

The tour comes to Eastleigh and Southampton in March and April.
