Wireless Wise - A Celebration of BBC Radio 4

Sunday 20 October 2019

Devonshire Park Theatre

Bringing together a unique group of seasoned radio pros for a celebration of BBC Radio in an unforgettable evening of comedy, music and nostalgia. 

Join Alistair McGowan, the Reverend Richard Coles, Garry Richardson, Charlotte Green and special guest Joe Stilgoe, as they reminisce with a show packed with hilarious anecdotes, sketches and music.

Alistair McGowan is a cherished household name, a master impressionist, a stand-up comic, an actor, a pianist, a writer of sketches, articles, stage and radio plays but is still probably best known to British audiences for 'The Big Impression' which was, for four years, one of BBC1's top-rating comedy programmes. 

Reverend Richard Coles is sometimes described as “Britain’s most famous Vicar”, a regular presenter on Radio 4’s Saturday Live and on Radio 2. A colourful career saw Richard form the pop band The Communards in the 1980’s and he’s the only vicar to have had a number one record, so he’ll have plenty of tales to share from his extraordinary journey from popstar to priest.

Garry Richardson joined the BBC in 1974 and “here’s Garry with the sport” has been heard on Radio 4’s The Today programme since 1981. He is infamous for his racing tips which never win and once famously got David Cameron to select two horses on his first day as Prime Minister.

Newsreader Charlotte Green was once voted the nation’s favourite voice in a Radio Times Poll and is one of the country's most recognisable and cherished voices. Famous for her warm tones, her diction and her poise, her fit of the giggles live on air made her a national treasure, with even Prince Charles thanking her for her “Impossibly infectious giggling”!

Joe Stilgoe is an internationally acclaimed singer, pianist and songwriter, whose live shows are a mixture of virtuoso musicianship and breathtaking theatricality, combining on the spot improvisation and the quickest of wits. Joe has toured the world with his band and as a solo act, and works extensively on radio, having hosted BBC Radio 2's Friday Night is Music Night and his own show on JazzFM.
