Terry Waite

Date and time

St James


In the 1980s, while operating as the Archbishop of Canterbury's special envoy, Terry Waite was taken and held hostage in Lebanon for nearly five years, in the midst of his work to try and secure the release of four hostages, including John McCarthy. Terry will be recalling engaging moments from his life through some of his readings and poetry with illustrative music played by pianist Matthew Rickard. This promises to be a very absorbing evening, which should appeal to a wide audience.
