Derby Book Festival - The Revd Richard Coles

Wednesday 14th June, 7.30 pm

Derby Cathedral will also welcome the Reverend Richard Coles, who will be at the Festival on Wednesday 14 June.   Richard was ordained by the Bishop of Derby in 2005 and now has his own parish in Northamptonshire.  He is also the presenter of BBC Radio 4’s Saturday Live and TV show The Big Painting Challenge.

In his latest book, Bringing in the Sheaves, he talks about what life is like for the parson in Britain today, giving a unique insight into his daily experience in the ministry, with all the joy, drama, difficulty and humour which life - and indeed death - serves up in varying measures.  He will be in conversation with the Right Reverend Jan McFarlane, Bishop of Repton.  Tickets cost £10, available from Derby QUAD Box Office or from the Festival website: www.derbybookfestival.co.uk
