Richard E Grant – In Conversation

Thursday 8th August 2024
Big Top, Lodge Grounds


Since his breakout role in cult classic film Withnail and I in 1987, actor Richard E Grant has become a much-loved fixture on our screens, starring in everything from the recent Saltburn to Doctor Who and Downton Abbey via Game of Thrones, Star Wars and Spice World. He was Oscar and BAFTA-nominated for his 2018 role in Can You Ever Forgive Me?

His most recent book, A Pocketful of Happiness was published in 2022 and was an instant Sunday Times bestseller, entwining tales from his showbiz career with uplifting reflections on love and loss.

At Fringe by the Sea, he will be in conversation discussing his life, achievements and the inspiration behind his book.

‘A Pocketful of Happiness’ will be available to purchase at the event from our book seller Night Owl Books or it can be pre-ordered here:
