Mark Thomas Presents: The Museum of Stolen Things
  • West End

Join Mark Thomas for one night only in the Museum of Stolen Things, the first ever pop museum of the nicked. The price is a fiver BUT you have to bring along something stolen to show us to get in. So with your help we will collectively create our museum, in a kind of anarchist version of the Antiques Roadshow. You bring anything from a bookies pen to The Scream by Edvard Munch, be as creative or as pedestrian as you like. The show is a recording of Mark's new podcast "Brit-ish" in which he explores our institutions, culture and history in a valiant and possibly vain attempt to find out how the bloody hell we got to this state. Mark Thomas has been going a long time, won lots of awards and will be filching Mark Steel's identity for the night. Terms and Conditions. *Anyone who does not bring along a stolen item will not be admitted and we will keep your fiver. **All items will be returned at the end of the show unless we like them. ***The Museum of Stolen Things is only 3 minutes walk away from the British Museum.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
