BBC Radio 4 award-winning series Mark Steel’s in Town is being recorded at Ventnor Winter Gardens..

Every year on BBC Radio 4, comedian, columnist and author Mark Steel visits six towns across the UK. He delves into their history, people and idiosyncrasies to try and work out what ingredients combine to make the place distinctive. Mark has already checked out Ventnor and on the 19th he will performs a tailor-made stand-up comedy show about the town.

The show is now in its 8th series. Previously, Mark has recorded shows in over 40 interesting and unusual places from the Isle of Portland in Dorset to Kirkwall, the capital of Orkney; plus Alderney in The Channel Islands and Gibraltar. One of the great things about the show is the ability of the locals to laugh at themselves and the eccentricities of the area.

It will undoubtedly be a night to remember and tickets are free just log on to the BBC web site and request them.
