Richard Coles (2015 Event)

He was once part of 1980s pop duo The Communards but later resurrected his career as the Reverend Richard Coles, and is currently tending to his flock in a parish in Northamptonshire. In Fathomless Riches, he explains how he reconciled his old life in that hedonistic and highly politicised decade with a more contemplative self which made him one of the inspirations for the clerics in the sitcom Rev and the movie Bridget Jones’ Diary. Watch his event here, chaired by Richard Holloway.
