James Runcie
Tales from Grantchester

A rare opportunity to hear from the man behind Sidney Chambers,the Cambridge vicar whose sleuthing abilities, love of jazz and unfortunate romantic entanglements have endeared him to readers and viewers alike. The son of former Archbishop of Canterbury Robert Runcie, James has a keen insight into religious life – but why murder and mayhem? And we’ll hear about his decision to give us a glimpse into Sidney’s earlier life in the new prequel, The Road to Grantchester.

In conversation with Alex Clark, journalist, critic, broadcaster and Festival Artistic Director.
