The Tom Allen Show

Monday, 23 September, 2019
Matcham Auditorium
The Tom Allen Show

Tom Allen is proud to be from suburbia, so proud in fact that he still lives there with his parents. He loves everything about regional Britain, and he knows it better than most, having travelled the nations and regions as a stand up. Now he’s heading off around the country again to celebrate his favourite places… and this time he’s here in Wakefield. Come and join him and friends for a special, one night only performance recorded for Channel 4.

This performance is stritcly for over 18's - If you're lucky enough to look under 18, ID will be required when entering the auditorium.

Do you have anything at home you have been thinking of selling / taking to a charity shop? Got any unusual preloved items that you think could do with re homing? Or perhaps you feel you have the perfect item that embodies Wakefield?

If so let us know! Tom Allen is looking for a souvenir to take home with him from Wakefield, and is on the hunt for something a bit more special than a magnet and a postcard. The more unusual the better!

He will also be looking to help others by doing swaps with their items in the theatre, so please do let us know if there is anything you are in need of!

If you want to get involved? Email: with a photo of the item you would like to get rid of / description of what you would like to swap it for!
