Since his breakout role in cult classic film Withnail and I in 1987, Richard E Grant has become a much-loved fixture on our screens, starring in everything from Doctor Who to Downton Abbey via Game of Thrones, Star Wars and Spice World and Oscar nominated for his 2018 role in Can You Ever Forgive Me?
Now, join him as he tells stories from his life, entwining tales from his extraordinary time in showbiz with uplifting reflections on love and loss, in celebration of his book, A Pocketful of Happiness.
Recorded during his recent appearance on the Concert Hall stage at QPAC, Richard considers the inspiration behind the book – how, when his beloved wife Joan died in 2021 after almost forty years together, she set him a challenge: to find a pocketful of happiness in every day. He found the instruction to be profoundly powerful, and this new book, drawing on both contemporary stories and recollections of his remarkable life and glittering career, is Richard’s way of honouring that challenge.
Tender, moving, and frequently hilarious, do not miss the opportunity to hear from one of the great actors of our time, as he celebrates and cherishes life’s unexpected joys.
