The Scotsman

Reverend Richard Coles is the only British vicar to have had a number-one hit single and to have appeared as a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing – a claim which seems unlikely to be matched any time soon. He is also a Sunday Times bestselling author, Twitter phenomenon and enormously loved broadcaster.

Sex, drugs, pop stardom, religious epiphany; love, a dream job, and the madness of grief. Some or all of this may come out as Richard lifts the lid on a life truly and truthfully lived. An intimate evening with a unique national treasure embarking on a first full national tour because he’s done pretty much everything else a person can do.

Seen and heard on BBC Radio 4’s Saturday Live, Would I Lie To You?, Have I Got News For You & QI, Reverend Richard Coles is often described as Britain’s most famous vicar
