  • The Reverend Richard Coles
    discusses
    Fathomless Riches

     
    Thursday 30th October at 7pm at Daunt Books Marylebone High Street



    The Revd Richard Coles, much loved presenter Of Radio 4's Saturday Live, is a parish priest and the inspiration behind his friend Tom Hollander's "Rev". When you add in the fact that he was a pop-star with Bronski Beat and then The Communards, you begin to understand why his searingly honest account of a life's journey from hedonistic pop party-goer to a life devoted to God is so compelling.

    Tickets are £8 and include a glass of wine, 20% off the speaker's books and 20% off supper on the night at Hardy's Brasserie and Wine Bar.

    Tickets may be purchased from our Marylebone shop in person, with credit/debit card by telephone 0207 224 2295 or here online.
