Eastwood Park Theatre has announced Reverend Richard Coles will take to the stage early next year as part of his first ever national tour.
The theatre will welcome ‘the only British vicar to have had a number one hit single and to have appeared as a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing’ on Saturday 13 January 2024.
The Sunday Times bestselling author, Twitter phenomenon and broadcaster has featured on BBC Radio 4’s Saturday Live, Would I Lie to You? and Have I Got News for You. He promises to lift the lid on a life truly and truthfully lived, discussing pop stardom, religious epiphany, a dream job and the madness of grief.
Moira McFadden, Head of Arts and Communities at East Renfrewshire Culture and Leisure, said: “We look forward to welcoming ‘Britain’s most famous vicar’, Reverend Richard Coles, to Eastwood Park Theatre as part of his national tour, for what promises to be a witty and insightful evening of entertainment. He is the latest star to join Eastwood Park Theatre’s line up for 2024, which also includes Sex Pistol’s frontman John Lydon and CBeebies star Nick Cope.”
Eastwood Park Theatre’s 50th anniversary line-up this year has featured a series of star performances from Lulu and Paul Young and the theatre is set to welcome Martin Kemp, Marti Pellow, Eamonn Holmes and Gareth Gates this autumn.
