An Evening with Rev. Richard Coles

at The Guildhall, St. Ives

See all dates for St Ives September Festival 2020

Join 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 on 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?”

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.
