Arrive at 6.30pm for the drinks reception followed by a delicious supper and talk. Ticket price includes food and a glass of fizz. Booking is essential, as we expect this event to sell out.
Currently Stephen is starring in the BBC1 drama The Split and Channel 4’s new comedy drama series, Hang Ups, which he has also co-written. He recently filmed Landscape and Portrait Artist of the Year for Sky Arts which he presents alongside Dame Joan Bakewell.
After a law degree at Cambridge, he graduated from RADA and has since become one of our best-known actors in theatre, TV and Film. He spent several years in regional theatre including Twelfth Night, As You Like It and The Tempest at Nottingham Playhouse. His successful seasons with the Royal Shakespeare Company and the touring company Cheek by Jowl earned him a nomination for the Ian Charleson award and he is a regular face in London’s West End.
His breakthrough TV role was the eponymous character in the BBC’s adaptation of Sue Townsend’s Adrian Mole: The Cappuccino Years, since which his TV appearances include the comedy series Green Wing, as Dan Moody in I’m Alan Partridge, co-starring with Matt Le Blanc and Tamsin Greig in Episodes, appearing as Tony Blair in the Comic Strip production, The Hunt for Tony Blair, and as the eponymous hero of the Dirk Gently series.
Stephen will be in conversation with Barbara Matthews, Pro Vice-Chancellor for Culture at Nottingham Trent University. Prior to this, Barbara was Pro Vice-Chancellor at De Montfort University and Director, Theatre at Arts Council England with responsibility for policy and strategy development. Barbara was also Executive Director of the Royal Court Theatre and earlier in her career produced the work of Cheek by Jowl worldwide – which is how she first met Stephen.
