The talk is set to explore Adrian’s successful career and various roles from Shakespearean theatre to the big screen. They will also discuss new ventures such as Adrian’s play that he wrote -Being Mr Wickham, which sees an older Mr Wickham look back over his life.
This year the Festival is running from 24 March – 3 April 2022 following the theme of ‘One World’.
