Award-nominated online sensation Morgan Rees embarks on his first ever UK tour with Turning Thirsty!

Hitting the milestone of his 30th birthday has made him develop a thirst… for life. He’s about to begin his first decade living truly authentically - and he can’t wait to get going.

A show about the unshackling of shame, embracing the power of Pride, and the trials and improvements that come with an experimental 20s. Or as he prefers to call them, the F** Ups and Perk Ups.

Also, there will most definitely be jokes about bumming.
