Mark Steel is back in town. This time he's coming to Aberystwyth.
Every year on BBC Radio 4, comedian, columnist and author Mark Steel visits six different towns across the UK. He delves into the history, people and idiosyncrasies to try to work out what ingredients combine to make the places distinctive. He then creates a bespoke stand-up show about the town, which he performs in front of a local audience.
It's a celebration of the sort of places in Britain that have their own fascinating stories to tell with inhabitants who are passionate about what their town has to offer. Essentially, it's a best man speech, but about a place.
The show is now in its ninth series. Previously, Mark has recorded shows in over 50 interesting and unusual places from the Isle of Portland in Dorset to Kirkwall, the capital of Orkney, as well as ones in Alderney in the Channel Islands and Gibraltar.
