Reverend Richard Coles: #SimpleCountryParson
Revd Richard Coles is on a fortnight’s leave from his country parish and has been excused from his duties as co-presenter of Saturday Live (BBC Radio 4) to bring to Edinburgh this hilarious yet deeply moving one-parson show.

Attempting to live a hybrid life as the 59th Vicar of Finedon, Richard discusses hatching, matching and dispatching among the gingerbread stone houses, neighbouring Weetabix factory and Primark Distribution Centre - alongside his alternative life as a broadcaster, writer, panel game show contestant, Strictly veteran and (thanks to being voted Most Whimsical Vicar on the Wireless) borderline national trinket.
