Performers at the Benefit

Mark Thomas

British TV comedian Mark Thomas uses pranks and stunts to expose questionable government and business practices. He’s been described as a “human time bomb who mixes comedy with old fashioned investigative journalism” and as “irrepressible and devilishly clever” by the Irish Times. The Guardian said recently of him: “Moving and inspiring as gripping as any live performance you will see”.
John Hegley

John Hegley is widely known as one of the country’s most innovative comic poets with seven best-selling volumes of poetry to his name. His stage act includes elements of poetry, music and comedy and he is a regular sell-out at The Edinburgh Festival. He wears glasses and despises contact lenses, both of which are made clear through his work. Other passions include potatoes, dogs and his home town of Luton. “Hegley is to potatoes what Wordsworth has been to daffodils.” The Observer
John Lenahan

Voted street magician of the year John Lenahan, is one of the most accomplished entertainers in the country. His own BBC2 series, Stuff The White Rabbit, achieved record ratings. John has read thousands of minds and levitated 20-pound Toblerone bars. He’s described by The Guardian as ‘the mascot of a magical renaissance’
