Rainbow Nation Charity Gala 2022: Acceptance

Rainbox Nation’s fun, exciting, uplifting and thought-provoking variety show is heading to Alexandra Palace.

Reflective of LGBT+ life in 2022, the performance will give the charity’s members an opportunity to not just show off all of their hard work, but to express themselves creatively and be free. It’s a celebration and a journey.

This year’s theme, acceptance, feels like a powerful and necessary choice: acceptance of who we are, who we love, our struggles and our accomplishments. Expect to laugh, to cry, to scream and want to get up and join in. You’ll be left feeling inspired, enlightened and slightly aroused.

An Evening with Reverend Richard Coles

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. He is also a Sunday Times bestselling author, Twitter phenomenon, much loved broadcaster, and now – as he retires as the 59th vicar of Finedon – Richard becomes a novelist with the first book in his eagerly anticipated Canon Clement mystery series.

Join him for this limited run of live events, as he celebrates the publication of Murder Before Evensong which sees the sleepy parish of Champton descend into unexpected chaos. In his hybrid life as vicar and media personality, Richard has many friends, and tonight, he will be in conversation with one of them to talk about Canon Clement, his new fictional sleuth.

He’ll also be unpicking his own unlikely journey, with all its unexpected junctions, heartache, and joys, that have led Richard to be voted Britain’s Most Whimsical Vicar. Sex, drugs, pop stardom, religious epiphany – a path to “the best job in the world”, hatching, matching and dispatching, his own experience of the madness of grief – this is the story of a life truly and truthfully lived.
