Rev. Richard Coles
Join Rev. Richard Coles as he tells a story that is as real as it is unlikely. During the evening he will connect the euphoria and mayhem of being Top of the Pops in the 80s to his present circumstances as a Church of England priest, radio broadcaster and television show panellist, answering amongst many burning questions, 'How do you go from pop star to priest? And why?'
Richard is best known as the regular host of BBC Radio 4’s Saturday Live programme and appears regularly on Newsnight and TV panel shows such as QI and Have I Got News For You. Richard is also well known for taking part in 2017’s BBC series Strictly Come Dancing.
A multi-instrumentalist who partnered Jimmy Somerville in the 1980s band The Communards - achieving three Top Ten hits, including the biggest selling hit of 1986 Don't Leave Me This Way - Richard subsequently left the pop world to train for a priesthood in the Church of England, becoming what can only be described as a thoroughly modern vicar.
