Tyne Theatre & Opera House are thrilled to play host to the #JC4PM tour for its Newcastle date on Tuesday 15th March.
To show support for Jeremy Corbyn’s campaign to transform the way politics is conducted, some of the UK’s leading comedians, singers, poets, campaigners and politicians have come together for a series of entertaining, thought-provoking and invigorating shows across the country.
The idea for the tour came up following the successful 'Jeremy Corbyn Night' that took place in London in September. Several of the performers from that show were keen to maintain the momentum behind Jeremy's successful campaign to become Labour Party leader and decided to put together a tour of the country aimed at raising the morale of Jeremy's supporters.
On Tuesday 15 March, a stellar line up will be appearing at the prestigious Tyne Theatre & Opera House.
Hosted by Barbara Nice ('Phoenix Nights', 'Coronation Street', 'Max and Paddy's Road to Nowhere'), the night features:
Mark Steel, comedian ('The Mark Steel Lectures', 'The Mark Steel Lecture'), TV panelist ('Question Time', 'QI', Have I Got News for You', 'Mock the Week', 'Room 101'), radio panelist ('The News Quiz', 'Loose Ends'), author ('Reasons to be Cheerful'), regular columnist in 'The Independent'.
