Tom is back out on the road in 2023 with his brand-new stand-up show, ‘Completely’, touring nationwide.

Mark Field, IAAF Chief Executive, comments: “As we head into the second half of the year the IAAF is gaining momentum in building to the aftermarket’s event of the year. It’s going to be a big celebration of our brilliant sector and we’re delighted to have Tom Allen join us to entertain guests to make it a night to remember.”
