Taking on George

Gentleman George Monbiot’s Left Hook Show, Alnwick Playhouse, Thursday, March 3, 7.30pm. Tickets £14, £13 conc, £10 student.

GEORGE Monbiot is one of the UK’s foremost environmentalists and thinkers and this performance sees him going round for round against members of the audience in a topical debate.

The Guardian columnist will pick a hot topic for the first half of the show and invite anyone to argue against him.

In the second half, it’s a free-for-all as any issue or subject is fair game to take on Gentleman George in a battle of wits and put him on the spot.

Don’t miss the chance to see this intellectual heavyweight as part of his nationwide tour, the first time he has been on the road in many years.
