Event PosterDate: Monday 02 December 2019
Venue:  Theatre Royal    map
Address:  Jewry Street, Winchester, Hampshire, SO23 8SB - under ½ mile
Event:  Comedy: Milton Jones - Impossible (warm-up show)
- 8pm - For ticket details or more information visit www.theatreroyalwinchester.co.uk/milton-jo... - One man. One Mission. Is it possible? No, not really. Milton reveals the truth about being an international spy, before being given a disappointing new identity which forced him to appear on Mock the Week and Live at the Apollo. But this is also a love story with a twist, or at least a really bad sprain. Just gloriously daft nonsense or is there a deeper meaning? Every man has his price. Sainsburys, where good food costs less.
