“Country, the UK, lost its way, seeks life partner/mentor/inspiration. Good sense of humour essential. No timewasters, tedious show-offs or offend-o-trons need apply. HR free zone.”
Standing up so you don't have to take it lying it down anymore, the Pub Landlord is back to make sense of the questions you probably already had the answers to. You know what they say: There’s no school like the old school, with the dodgy overflowing toilets.

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

Catch him as he departs on a second triumphant tour across our nation armed with even more outrageous takes, unbelievable tales, and biblical chat to leave you bowled over with laughter.
Having amassed a loyal fan base of over a quarter of a million followers the multi-viral, social media sensation is delving even deeper into his ludicrous life as he tries to smarten up the not so honourable aspects of himself.

Opened in 1931, mainly to act as a venue for the Leith Hill Music Competition, Dorking Halls was the property of the festival until WWII during which they were commandeered by the Meat Marketing Board and the army. In 1946, the halls were thriving, with community events being held there, including flower shows, scout meetings and dances. They were refurbished in 1997 and the venue became a location for theatre, comedy and music, as well as films.
The halls are located in the centre of town and there is parking available at the side and rear of the venue as well as opposite in the council offices car park.
Tell us more about this venue.
