The man who brought us “Working Class Millionaire”, “Drag Queen Blues” and “Beaver the Believer” is coming back to Faversham…and it’s been a while!
West Ham born Richard Digance is a BAFTA Nominated entertainer and a recipient of The Gold Award from The British Academy of Composers and Songwriters. He has also won a Sony Award and is one of only three British folk singers mentioned in The Virgin Anthology of Songwriters for his contribution to comedy songwriting.
He has released 43 albums, written 22 books and composed the songs and music for Bill Bryson’s best-selling Audio CD book ‘The Road To Little Dribbling.’ He has worked in America with movie star Steve Martin and recalls two of his greatest moments as playing The London Palladium with Robin Williams and a guitar duet on TV with Queen guitarist Brian May.
Off-stage he composes soundtracks and incidental music for TV and movies plus audio CD books.
Through the uncertainties of lockdown Richard decided to reduce his 2022 live shows, only playing his favourite theatres, allowing him to spend more time writing books and painting.
But in 2023, he’s back!
